As far as X11 is concerned, the number of channels and their sizes don't
even matter; a pixmap is simply a container for an unsigned integer of n
bits (where n is the pixmap depth) per pixel, with no inherent meaning
attached to those values.
That said, I'm not sure this is true for EGL as well. But even if it
isn't, there would have to be another mechanism to determine the format,
e.g. a config associated with the EGL pixmap. The pixmap doesn't even
necessarily have the same depth as the root window, so using the
latter's visual doesn't make much sense.
