Otherwise, we wouldn't bother using them until the prefix was dropped. Authors DO use the prefixed properties and values. They squawk, but use them all the same.

In practice, they use them in ways that hurt minority browsers and hurt 
the web.  That's too bad, but it's the way things are.

For what it's worth, we (Mozilla) are also considering only shipping 
prefixed properties in non-final releases.
