If you both don't want prefixes in non-RTM browsers and advocate that 
experimental features should be kept in non-RTM browsers, then we are going 
for a model where nobody prefixes anything (exepept platform-specific 
things). Is it what we really want?

I don't see a need for a prefix in non-RTM builds. Instead of
facilitating cross-browser non-RTM demos, I think they'd hurt unit
test development, because you'd need to edit tests even when the
substance (beyond prefix) didn't need changing.

I don't believe that supporting more than one draft at the same time
in one browser build for testing is a case that needs catering for,
because browser developers would be unlikely to go through the trouble
of making two incompatible variants of the code appear in the same
code snapshot just for testing.
