Right. That should be the goal; Authors not using prefixes in production 
sites *at all*. But to achieve that, 
"stable-for-common-use-cases"/stable-syntax-properties must be 
unprefixed as quickly as possible and edge cases resolved as quickly as 
possible (after the unprefixing).

(Also, vendors shouldn't put prefixed stuff into stable releases. But 
sadly, that's not an option..)
