So does anyone have a specific proposal on how to fix this?  What
would be an appropriate procedure to freeze syntax for a given
property and allow unprefixed use?  There have been some fairly
specific suggestions from the "introduce a shared prefix" camp, but no
one has come up with an actual proposal for dropping prefixes sooner
(that I've seen).  This is a real problem, and a solution is needed.
