Exactly. In other words, the background section remains in a CR state. So
does border image. But it would be fair to say that box-shadow is not yet
ready for unprefixed support in a browser release. IE9 is still at the
platform preview stage so we are still able to go back to an -ms state if
necessary. Opera, however, has already released the bare version.
