Should this be marked nonstandard? "Opacity" returns approximately 108 times as many search results on Google. (I know Google result counts are not entirely accurate measurements, but with such a contrast it is hard to deny that one is.) From the Wiktionary appendix's glossary: "nonstandard — Not conforming to the language as accepted by the majority of its speakers." I personally have only seen "opaqueness" used once (which is why I am here) and wonder if others would support classifying this word as nonstandard--opacity is the standard form.
