Direct hit :)

AOO 3.4.1 writes a style:background-transparency for a Writer frame with 
background color and transparency. LibreOffice 5.3 writes 
style:background-transparency too, but in addition it writes draw:fill, 
draw:fill-color and draw:opacity.

LibreOffice writes draw:fill, draw:fill-color and draw:opacity too in 
style:page-layout-properties, however there without 
style:background-transparency. But for draw:fill, draw:fill-color and 
draw:opacity it is the same problem as for 
style:background-transparency: It is not allowed in 

So my conclusion is, that a transparent property for page background is 
indeed needed. But I would suggest not to extend the 
style:background-transparency, but the draw:xyz attributes, because they 
are richer and already used in LibreOffice.

Kind regards
