Unfortunately I find this more confusing rather than less confusing.

To simplify...

Assume:
A. We have a module at WD.
B. Some of the module is ready to be unprefixed.
C. The rest of the module is not ready to be unprefixed.

How do you get to...
   1. The feature is in CR.
... for the features in B, while respecting the C constraint.

We did not agree to move to CR on a per-feature basis.
We did agree to allow prefix-dropping on a per-feature basis.

Dropping prefixes != moving to CR.

Dropping prefixes requires:
   1. The feature is in CR.
   2. The implementation is correct *per CR spec*
   3. The implementation proves its correctness via tests.

It's possible for #1 to be true for features that don't satisfy all three.
