Please do not test with AOO 3.4.1. Rendering svg and rendering gradients 
have been reworked. Please use a current snapshot of AOO4.0

The transparency itself can be defined as gradient.

Transparency it a forth channel besides RGB. There exist nothing like a 
"transparency of a color". Each value of a pixel consists of four parts: 
Red, Green, Blue and transparency, each in the range of 0 to 255.

I do not really understand, which result you want to get. Your 
attachment shows some changes in UI, but do not explain, what the 
resulting gradient should look like.

Kind regards
