           Summary: Consider "prefix--" instead of "_prefix-" as a pattern

Consider "prefix--" instead of "_prefix-" as a pattern for proprietary
extensions. I've been trying to convince people at Apple to use the naming
pattern recommended by the standard for vendor extensions, and the sheer
ugliness of "_webkit-" makes it an impossible sell. "webkit-" is more
palatable, and in practice will never conflict with a future standard feature,
but presumably we want something that can work for an arbitrary vendor and will
never conflict with a future standard. So a perhaps less ugly possibility is
"prefix--" (note double hyphen).
