Then WebKit should move back to ::-webkit-selection too.

Weird feelings to see that something everyone agreed to remove from a
spec because "at risk" is implemented w/o prefix and even w/o a common
definition as if it were already a standard.

I am requesting from Microsoft, Opera and the WebKit team an email to
this list explaining *precisely* their specification of ::selection.

Mozilla, please also contribute a mail about ::-moz-selection possibly
more precise than the contents of [1].

In particular, please document the edge cases, inheritance, etc.
The CSS WG will then decide what to do with this pseudo.

FWIW, I am myself _strongly_ in favor of going back to vendor prefixes.
I am fed up of seeing vendors not doing what they recommend to
