Are the proposed comma removals backwards-compatible in the sense that
prefixed properties would work with extra commas if unprefixed? (It
seems to me that wouldn't be the case.) Without that kind of
compatibility with what's deployed, I expected it to be very confusing
to authors if dropping prefixes needs to be couples with dropping
well-selected commas, too.
