What exactly is the point of making the Alpha Mask for a particular article of mesh clothing no-mod? What else am I going to do with that texture? Perhaps it is just habit.
For my own part, I would think more highly of any designer who mulled it over for a second and realized that a user who could edit the Alpha texture included with a mesh outfit or separate, thereby making a sweater or a skirt look better, is going to be likely to come back for more.
