Yes, that's the current way. The good thing is that RGB readers can still
read RGBA and just discard the alpha-channel, so having the same mimetype
would make sense in a way. But it's suboptimal in another way, too. I
personally didn't really bother thinking too much about this because I
don't see too many RGBA videos nowadays.
