I think the underlying issue here is less a problem with the
mechanism than a problem that the working group has not been
aggressive enough in advancing properties to Candidate
Recommendation (or to some other status where we've agreed
implementations can implement properties without prefixes).

In many cases, I think this is related to different properties
within the same draft having different stability levels.
