The last time I reported it (bugzilla #588984) I was told "Not A Bug" but also "discuss on mailing list". I did not have access to said mailing list that time ago - but I do now. So yes, let's.
If I set my tool to 50% opacity I want the visible end result of a single (non-overlapping) stroke to be 50% opacity. Whether or not I have incremental mode enabled should make absolutely no difference in this context; it should only make a difference when parts of a stroke overlap or intersect each other (such as shading one area back-and-forth).
