This is known as http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/5695. The restriction has 
been put, because currently the driver couldn't not produce correct RGBA files 
with the alpha band correctly marked as such. I may have the opportunity to 
work on that in a medium term.

In the meantime, you could perhaps try the opj_compress utility of openjpeg ( 
https://code.google.com/p/openjpeg/wiki/Downloads?tm=2 ), but it will likely 
has the same flow as indicated above if you're interested in RGBA images.
