I, for one, can't wait to cut 20% of the code in my stylesheets.

In the meantime, you can use LESS mixins to reduce duplication. This library is pretty handy: http://lesselements.com/

The parent was likely referring to them being in the stylesheet at all, rather than the way they are managed. Any stylesheet compiler is still going to have the vendor prefixes in the compiled stylesheet.

In practice you won't actually be able to drop them from the compiled stylesheet for a very long time, of course.

Chrome has a very quick release cycle, so I don't see why not?

Webkit is used by Safari (desktop and iOS) which is still a huge portion of internet users.

right but since those "new" things won't work in chrome the hope is that devs won't implement them anywhere else.
