I'll toss another opinion onto the pile.

It sounds like what's desired is something like...
1. UAs implement W3C recommendations whenever and however they want -- behind their own vendor prefix
2. When W3C specification hits CR -- the unprefixed property can be enabled in the UA, if it's compliant with the spec
3. When W3C specification rewinds to less than CR -- the unprefixed property should be disabled

If you want this kind of immediate browser response, you need something like an XML file on the W3C servers that identifies which version of the specification is required for the property to be enabled in non-prefixed form.

Anything else implies compliance involves a haphazard binary drop schedule of UAs based on editor whim.
