I support adding a way to mark specific properties or parts of CSS specs as
stable (and thus unprefixable). The whatwg HTML spec does this. It makes
sense to me to do this across all W3C specs. Once all the parts of the spec
are marked stable, then the draft can effectively go to CR.

I would like the annotations to be in the spec itself if possible.
