This is something relatively new that we agreed to a few f2f meetings
ago.  Image Values is likely going to be the first to seriously test
this.

The idea is any implementation may drop prefixes as soon as they
believe they pass the testsuite sufficiently.  If you pass all the
gradient tests, for example, you can drop prefixes on gradients even
if there are other features you don't yet pass.

(Sorry, I assumed Sylvain said something about this.)
