This was indeed suggested multiple times in the past. But since you're
the Apple AC-Rep, maybe you can answer that easy question: if we do
that, will Apple remove such early prefixes from WebKit even if they
are shipped and used in the wild? Without a VERY firm "yes", I will
increase the problem only, not decrease it...
