Then authors should just forget using CSS3. I support the way things are.

If Alexander wishes to use experimental CSS, he puts up with using 
vendor prefixes. I have used them since 2008 and I haven't had to change 
them (even if the behavior may vary in different browsers).

Boris gave the best reason being that an author may have to update there 
CSS since changes are made to long established CSS.
