[cairo] Alpha channel for text under win32

I have been looking at the alpha channel in the win32 surface, with the
requirement to do some alpha blending outside of cairo.
I set the target via:
I have noticed an issue here, the primatives I am using lines/fills etc. do
generate an alpha value in the 4th byte of the DC's bitmap, but text
rendering does not.
My current fix is to set:
surface->format = CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32;
cairo_win32_surface_create (HDC hdc)
but this seems to drop the quality of the text a little on initial review.
Is this the best solution?
Is it possible to pass a flag into cairo_set_target_win32 to select between
CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32 and CAIRO_FORMAT_RGB24 for the surface formats?
