How exactly is that better?

On my monitor, your 50% opacity version looks hardly
different from full opacity, and the dithered version
is not exactly obviously different when quickly looked
at it.

I don't see how going from something that is clearly
distinguishable to something that is hardly different
from a visible icon is any improvement of usability.
