My proposition didn't cancel current behavior.

Possible 3 statements:
* Spec is incomplete, UA support it in testing mode.
* Spec is complete, UA support feature in standard mode.
* UA feature, no spec available.

Developers will use something: foo; in second case.
Otherwise  -ua-something: foo; in third case.
And -something: foo; for first one; (use - instead *), because every
UA should be as closer as possible to spec, is not right?

I do not want to change my CSS every 3 month, because UA behavior or
Spec was changed.
CSS hacks legalization is very bad idea, IMO.
