FWIW, I agree on this point.  WSGI2  seems better than WEB3.  IMO, its 
OK to put a disclaimer at the top of the spec that states they are 
different specs and entirely backwards incompatible.  If there is 
consensus to more away from WSGI, then I think a name other than WEB3 is 
in order.  Its just too generic.
