In the end I copied the default notes.svgz to my theme directory, and edited 
it with inkscape, so that all colored backgrounds are now semi-transparent. 

I didn't touch the translucent background, which has a completely transparent 
background, and this is why the note widget appears completely transparent 
when I select this background. 

However, I think something goes wrong with it. In the SVG file it appears to 
have a thin border/shadow, but this border is not rendered at all when I 
select it as the widget background. Moreover, if I test and color it in black 
in inkscape, it still appears thouroughly transparent. I don't understand what 
is going on with it!
