It does; that's what the XBL spec is using today. The question is whether 
the CSS community minds if we remove the prefix and just put the 
properties in the main namespace.

So far it seems that there is not a clear consensus; the majority of 
implementors seem to favour putting the property and the pseudo-class in 
the main CSS namespace, and the other commenters were about evenly split.
