After some discussion we decided to support both the MOZ_-prefixed and the unprefixed strings for one release cycle, and generated a warning on the MOZ_-prefixed string.

So the idea is to start supporting the unprefixed string and warn on the MOZ_prefix in Firefox 17, and drop support for the MOZ_-prefixed string in Firefox 18. 

We also discussed some other approaches we could use for such extensions to avoid unnecessary prefix pain, but let me start a new thread for that.
