This has the disadvantage that vendor-specific features can't be
commented out in a conformant way since '--' is not permitted within
comments, per
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/syntax.html#comments

I'd also note that Gecko has quite a few _moz- attributes, although
they're for "internal" things rather than things that we intend to
expose to authors.
