I did some tests here (in RGBA-8bit) with Reroute, and Alpha Channel. It 
seems to work correctly. It is time consuming, for me, to post here the 
screencast/screenshot of the tests, but if you think it can be useful 
tell me.
It may be (surely) that Cin-CV and Cin-GG work slightly differently.  I 
remember that, when you are using Title effect, the black colour is 
meant to be the alpha channel (more or less).
It may be that not everything Cin-CV is able to do can be reproduced in 
Cin-GG,... and vice versa.
