A case for URI-based namespaces?:

@namespace somevendor "http://example.com/ns/";

body {
  -somevendor-myproperty: 23%;
}

This could also apply to media types and media features, since (AIUI)
they are now defined syntactically the same as CSS property names:

<link rel="schema.somevendor" href="http://example.com/ns/">
<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"
      media="-somevendor-3ddisplay and (-min-somevendor-feature: 4em)">

Cheers,

Steven
