I know what's the difference, but since currently every tool would be unfamiliar with this chunk, every tool will ignore it.

Future? We're talking about a 30 year old retrocomputer and fileformat. I want to support what exists, not dream about what is not and never will.

It would be pointless.

The genlock's 1-bit transparency is applied for palette entries (maximum 32 on top of that). That cannot be applied to pixels.

Not my competence. Whenever something will appear what can do something with alpha layers in the ILBM i will support it. I won't create unnecessary and/or useless features, just to create them.

Because size does matter.

On the classic Amiga, it is. Not too much memory or HDD, i won't waste it for unneeded and unusable data.

What do you expecting? Somebody will port Photoshop or GIMP to the Amiga? There won't be any programs what will support it.

What?
