When was the last time that you tested to see if un-prefixed versions of 
those properties are supported? Many browsers support them now un-prefixed.

At this moment of time WebKit supports border-radius without a prefix 
but has trouble with percentage values in some cases.

-webkit-border-radius: 120px 120px; /* WebKit will use these values */
border-radius: 50% 50%; /* WebKit does not handle percentage values in 
some cases */
