We should obey the goals of the standards, and follow their guidelines about vendor prefixes. When we implement CSS features, we should try to implement them to the letter of the spec, not half-ass it, and if it's not ready, put a vendor prefix behind it.

Oh yes, that is very important and I don't think I ever mentioned it:
We know very well where we want to be when we're done. We know that we
want to define GTK as a set of boxes and we know that these boxes will
conform to the CSS box model and be styled using CSS properties. The
behavior of these properties is specified in the CSS specifications
and conforms to what browsers do for all the standard CSS properties
that we do support.

We are not there yet, but we know where we are going.
