There didn't seem to be any real resolution there.  Everyone agreed
that Mozilla supporting -webkit- properties was a bad idea, but I
didn't see any real objections to some standard prefix for drafts,
like -w3c- or -*- or -wd- or draft- or whatever.  Does anyone have any
problems with that, for browsers that fully implement a property from
a CSS draft?  Vendor prefixes could still be reserved for non-standard
properties, and implementations that are so incomplete or buggy that
the vendor doesn't want to inflict them on the general public yet.
