I think we should require that browsers not support skew(), like by saying

"""
Previous versions of this specification defined a transformation called skew()
that took one or two angles as arguments.  User agents must not support such a
transformation without vendor-specific prefixes
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#vendor-keywords>.
"""

Otherwise, we might have a situation where implementations don't bother
dropping support.  Authors might then use skew(), find that it only works in
some browsers, and blame the remaining browsers for not supporting it.  We
should be clear that all browsers have to drop support for the unprefixed
property, so that we maintain interop.
