Well, isn't that just one other problem solved with this way of prefixing? 
This way browsers CAN move on to newer versions, even after it gets 
sufficient usage.

No, browsers just dont' update their prefixed version anymore once it
gets sufficient usage.  That's why all the prefixed gradients are
frozen at whatever syntax they had initially. (Firefox has updated
theirs compatibly.)
