How did we get to CR without prefixed versions that match what the CR 
draft says and thus testing of said prefixed versions in the wild?

Right, and depended on other UAs to do the in-the-wild testing of the 
new border-image syntax, yes?  But you can't have all UAs thus depending 
on other UAs, because then none of them will actually be testing the 
updated syntax.
