The only instance of a webkit property name (outside of examples) I 
see is user-select in the ED of UI-4, and that was only added less 
than two months ago. Given the number of webkit prefixes in the compat
 spec, I think the consistency argument favors keeping them out of CSS
 specs, and I'll argue that one should be removed as well (and added 
back to the compat spec).

I understand the unfortunate platform dependency, and agree that those
 prefixed items that have become problematical in the wild should be 
documented and standardized for web compatibility, but that's what the
 compat spec is for (modularity FTW). 

Yes, we have to live with them (for now at least), but we don't want 
to spread the disease. The last thing we want to do is encourage 
authors to use them (both of the authors that actually read our 
specs), or give any kind of signal that someone implementing a CSS 
engine that doesn't necessarily care about web compat (like, say an 
ePub reader or offline formatting engine) should implement these 
things. What's next, adding conformance tests for -webkit- properties?
