If you are talking about package/module naming then no others aren't really free to use it. Once someone uses it, becomes impossible for others to use it, including the Python distribution itself or any package which comes out of any specifications/standards based process from the Python WEB-SIG. Even in other contexts it would be a bad idea. So, leave unadorned 'wsgi' specifically for Python WEB-SIG and any standards associated with original WSGI PEP 333. One should even avoid quite generic variations on the name, ie. prefixes or suffixes added, as again the Python WEB-SIG can also seen to have some prior/higher rights on those as well.
