I htought about this a while before answering, because at first I wasn't 
really sure what to answer.

I understand how you feel, this is not exactly a clean situation or an easy 
one.
And I already told you before that this would happen whenever prefix would 
have been stable enough. Unfortunately you not only hidden prefix from most 
of the possible users/developers, but also never provided a status to the 
other fellow developers :/

As I said, you've hidden it, you "stole" it from the eyes of who needed to 
know about it, and now you're stuck in having to bring it in again, slowly, 
so that it can become the norm. It is bureaucracy mostly? Yes. Could have 
been avoided? Unlikely. Could have been solved more easily? Sure.
