"Transparent" and "visible" are not quite antonyms. How it should look? This question is not so trivial. Transparency is a kind of abstraction: it defines how an object looks if there are some other objects are in its background. If all of the background is white, there is no a way to tell transparent from opaque.

Do you want to see anything through the window? Do you have any patterns below the canvas?

Also, how about the objects placed on canvas. Do you want them affected by some "common" transparency of not?
