I can understand why the Kindle Fire would merit its own sub-forum. It's as different from other Kindles as night and day. It's a tablet with a backlit screen that runs apps. But the other Kindles are extremely similar. Outside of the X-Ray function mentioned above, which I doubt many owners will use with any regularity, and one or two other quirks such as the 3G Touch needing a WiFi connection to surf the Internet, they're all basically the same device.
Even though they may do the same thing, the internals are not the same. So even if you feel the Kindle forum doesn't need prefixes, the Kindle Developer forum does and as long as it does, the Kindle forum should also get them. The Sony forum has them. Why? The Sony readers do mostly the same things. So that's really not a very valid excuse not to have the prefixes.
