Doesn't the prefix indicate an experimental status, meaning that  
authors can expect such properties to change how they work? In any  
case, this is a fairly marginal case that is unlikely to have much  
impact on existing layouts. I expect the property is used on the  
iPhone a lot, but I've never seen anything on mine where the text  
intersects the radius corners.
