There are some cases:

  1. If you have a very large codebase, you can use those prefixes as namespaces, to avoid name conflict on your own codebase.

  2. If you load a CSS Lib that uses a variable name with same name as yours, that also would be a problem.

  3. If your Styles will be used along a very large or distributed application, you dont know what kind of code already lives there, so better to use prefixes to keep everybody safe,
