Automatically prefix CSS values

Now that jQuery automatically prefixes CSS properties, auto-prefixing values would be useful, too. I'm talking about things like transition, transform, calc etc.

Can you provide some examples of what you are looking for?

For example so that using: $('#id').css('width', 'calc(50% - 30px)'); would cause the following in Chrome: document.getElementById('id').style.width === '-webkit-calc(50% - 30px)'

Actually, I made a mistake mentioning transitions and transforms, they are obviously values, not properties.

Another useful value waiting to be handled this way is linear-gradient to be interpreted as -webkit-linear-gradient in WebKit browsers.

Obviously it can't be done so 'pretty' as auto-prefixing values, you'd have to keep a white-list of accepted properties; there aren't a lot of them, though. Lea Verou keeps four of them in -prefix-free; apart from mentioned they're 'element' and 'cross-fade'.

I think this is beyond what core would do, especially since it couldn't be implemented economically in all our supported browsers.
