That looks much better. I still think it's darker than it should be to
the point of being confusing. In particular the media buttons (play,
etc.) don't look very light since they already have a full range of
alpha values. I think the target should be "as light as possible while
still being legable." That way users can easily glance at the buttons
and see what options are available and only think about the insensative
buttons when they are.
