Have non-prefixed hooks allows for easier communication between plugins and theme. A plugin developer can hook into something like "header_after" and add it's markup there. In cases where the hook is prefixed with the theme slug, it is impossible for the plugin developer to know what the prefix is.

Hopefully, no. The idea of the standard would be to have all themes using the same exact hooks so that plugins could integrate with all-of-the-themes.
