If popular properties are languishing for years, then with all due 
respect this group is not doing the work it's chartered to do.  And then 
the right solution is probably to route around the damage, reach some 
sort of inter-UA agreement (a la what happened with HTML when it 
languished for years) on the properties, unprefix, and move on with life.

I seriously doubt that would happen; what I describe above seems much 
more plausible.
