A bit more than that. I'm suggesting browser vendors to informally
agree on a simple way to mark a stylesheet as 'opted into experimental
features for browser X'. In other words, replace all vendor prefixes
in the stylesheet with one global one. I do not think allowing 
stylesheets to mix experimental and non-experimental features with
no visible way to tell such a mix is occurring is going to be 
troublesome for all browser vendors.
