"The programmer" as in the one who makes the rendering machine or the reader app? Or "the programmer" as in me making an error when removing the background from the image?

If tomorrow I change my mind and want to make the background green instead of blue, or tweak the nuance of the color or (heaven forbid!) even make a gradient as background, it's good to have the background of the image transparent instead of solid color. Changing and tweaking is easier. The only reliable way I have found to achieve this is to vectorize the image too and embed it in the svg file.

This happens with the ADE 2.0 desktop utility too, and with bluefire. It works in iBooks. I have not yet tried Marvin since my ipad has iOS 4.2 and Marvin requires iOS 5
