netwm is the name for the spec referred to in the original mail of this policy
proposal.  The name comes from the hints NET_WM_*.  WMSP is the same thing.

GNOME and KDE each invented their own wm specs initially.  At the same time E
was also coming up with ways for the wm to communicate with 3rd party pagers
and the like.  Everyone agreed to get together and codify a common standard. 
GNOME 1.x uses the GNOME hints and was the last group to support the standard.
