Thanks Tantek,

After reading through  
<http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/vendor-prefixes#cursor-zoom-in-zoom-out> and  
discussing this internally I've gone ahead and removed the -o- prefix from  
the zoom-in and zoom-out values. I'm not sure yet when this will be  
released in the wild, but it's safe to say that the prefixed versions will  
be short-lived enough to not matter.

It's my strictly personal opinion that it would be good to consider  
prefixing more on a case-by-case basis. There must be many more features  
which are in practice stable but are still prefixed just because of the  
uncertainty around the situation.
