Yes. The behavior of 'width' is that of the 'height' property in vertical
writing modes, so until that's also implemented and interoperable, I don't
think it's a good idea to remove the prefixes. In particular, behavior for
'fill-available' has been requested to change in the logical height dimension,
and that's not even specced yet.

Note that while Gecko doesn't implement vertical text, Webkit does.
