"CSS3 browser" and "CSS4 browser" are meaningless terms.

You seem to be saying that adding features to CSS hurts interoperability
because not all user-agents will implement the new features simultaneously.
That may be true, but it's independent of prefixing policy; a spec module
reaching CR has the same effect under our current policy.

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not
in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us
our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not
sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us." [1 John
