Do we keep prefixes in the title of proprietary features?

Hi all,

Recently I've been renaming several -ms- prefixed pages we inherited to their prefixless variants and neutralizing the content. However, there are some features that are completely proprietary: Never were considered for a standard, never supported by other browsers etc, such as [1]. What do we intend to do with such features?

1) Do we keep them and remove the prefix? That they might be proprietary now, but might always be adopted by other browsers and/or specs, and it's better to rename earlier than later.
2) Do we delete them? We don't want to promote proprietary features, right?
3) Do we keep them with the prefix? After all, we want to be as complete as possible.
4) Something else?

Cheers,
Lea
