i'm not sure if IPR issues have yet been discussed in this context, but i
believe we can't simply standardize currently prefixed properties without
first introducing them into scope of the WG according to W3C IPR practices

of course, if the prefixed version matches (without modification)
preliminary specifications already developed within WG scope, then this
would not be a barrier

please correct me if i have the wrong impression
