    Setting ImageView background color does work. It just does not show with any of the current
scaling options. Without "maintain aspect ratio" the image is stretched to fit screen, so
you never see the background. With "maintain aspect ratio" the image covers the screen fully,
so again you don't see the background.
    If I hard-code a scaling option like FIT_CENTER, then ImageView background color does
fill areas that are not covered by the drawable. So if the purpose of BG color is to simply
fill areas not covered by the drawable, then we can take out LinearLayout. I thought that
the purpose was to somehow cover up the WebView in background if the device is rotated, which
probably wouldn't work anyway. Here's the test app without LinearLayout, with scale mode temporarily
set to FIT_CENTER and BG color set to RED:
