Mozilla has already added a number of extensions using just a "moz" prefix
... e.g. mozInnerScreenX, mozPaintCount, mozRequestAnimationFrame.

Webkit has added extensions using a "webkit" prefx ... e.g.
webkitDisplayingFullscreen.

In theory I guess that pattern could conflict with new features. But in
practice it doesn't seem likely unless new engines enter the market and
choose prefixes poorly. (I.e., don't choose a prefix that matches an English
verb or noun.)
