Would you rather you were allowed to define properties without any 
prefix?  Say, for example, you define and implement a 'layout' property 
in your own system.  Then what happens when the CSSWG decides that they 
want to introduce a 'layout' property aswell, but need to define it 
differently from the way you've implemented it?
