Unhappy Labels are always opaque (Labels.lua)

Maybe I'm wrong about this, but shouldn't the following create a dot that's only 10% opaque? In fact, all labels currently appear opaque to me, is this intentional? What else is "opacity"?

[10000] = dot_symbol(0,0.1)

Opacity only affects the label shadow. The label itself is always rendered at 100% opacity and the only thing that you can tweak with it is its fade-to-black level (color_blending_k), usually to hide the coalition colour at longer distances. If you have no visible shadow, opacity does not affect anything.
