> The problem is once something is shipped with no vendor prefix, the genie is out of the bottle.  We can't then ship a new version that breaks a feature that people may have come to rely upon.  It's also not realistic to expect to wait until PR to drop the vendor prefixes.  It's also not realistic to expect the vendor to put the prefix back onto the property after shipping a version with no prefix.

@variables is number one request from users and you removed it from
