My point was that right now there are no real restrictions on the syntax 
of future pseudo-elements or pseudo-classes, and certainly not on 
prefixed ones.

So having some sort of setup where "as little as possible" is dropped 
would involve defining restrictions on said future syntax so that UAs 
now know what they're supposed to drop.

Make sense?
