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.
