%D Actually, there's an intermediate ``\type{xdv}''
%D output format, but by default, it's tranparently
%D converted to \PDF\ by \XETEX.


%D Rotation looks fine.

%D Scaling and mirroring are also fine.

%D Colors are done with the \DVIPDFMX\ color model, which are
%D inherited.

%D Although hex colors were accommodated by Hans, we'll try the
%D more familiar \DVIPDFMX\ ones. One good side-effect of the
%D previous approach was that it kept track of the color state
%D (transparency in XeTeX is accomplished setting the color to
%D an RGBA quadruple, rather than an RGB triple). So transparency
%D will need another plan.

% Although in \CONTEXT\ transparency is closely integrated
% in the color drivers, in the end it is an independent
% feature.
