Yep. That seems correct to me.

  PIPE_FORMAT_XYZW8888_UNORM goes from least to most significant bit in integer: uint32 color = (X << 0) | (Y << 8) | ...

  PIPE_FORMAT_X8Y8Z8W8_UNORM matches memory ordering: uint8 color[4] = {X, Y, Z, W};

I didn't want to nitpick any further than I already have so far, but I agree with you entirely.
