It would be very interesting to see what gradient meshes do with color opacity !

Also keep in mind visual issues.

In all the examples I have seen, diffusion curves have had a distinct, if sometimes subtle, unique look to them. Something akin to looking at a watercolor and being able to say "the artists used watercolors to do this painting".
