That RFC has been implemented (that page wasn't updated properly) but
apparently PNG8 transparency isn't working for you.  I'd consider this
either a defect (if transparency is supposed to work for PNG8, which

enhancement if it isn't.  Either way, the only way to be sure that
developers are aware of the issue is to post a ticket, preferably with
screen shots, URLs, etc that allow them to easily replicate.
