In practice, authors do target an engine since the latter implement a specific draft behind their prefix and keep it that way until unprefixing time (and beyond, in some cases). But I care less about the name than I do about having a single ! modifier in the declaration.

Why not. This simplifies greatly token interpretation, and encourage to specify more than one implementation, due to the parentheses.

However, if you want to keep the philosophy I developed behind the original proposal, I would prefer something like !draft(ms), !target(ms) or !wd(ms).

Authors shouldn't target an user agent, but a draft; even if most (if not all) draft implementations are vendor dependent in the phase during which thoses DVMs are expected to be used.

Fwiw I think I'd rather see something like:

border-radius: 3px !ua(moz,webkit,o,ms)
