If this is consensual, I am happy to change it

We have conflict between ease for use for the main case and potential conflicts due to the "global property notion" in schema.org.

I am fine to prefix them all to

vehicleAirbags etc.

if this is consensual - Dan, Guha what is your take?

From a Web developers perspective, I think the shorter names are more appealing because the typing effort will be much lower, and also an auto-complete feature in an editor will not work as well if 20+ properties have the same prefix.

Due to the examples in three syntaxes, I would like to know the consensual opinion among the sponsors of schema.org prior to implementing the change.
