It's encouraged for your plugins as in:
$:/plugins/juliankniephoff/frobnicator ... I personally would shorten the
author section somehow, to have more characters for the plugins, without
everything being too long.

IMO nobody would like this. So for me it's still a "first come / first
serve" for widget and macro names. ... BUT ... If you have a nice and short
prefix for your calls, it may help in the future. .. I'm thinking about 2
to 3 chars max.
The problem for me is, that getting the names right needs some iterations.
So you can go with an
- alpha version number eg: 0.0.1 first ... So everyone should be OK with
name changes. ...
- Second step beta eg: 0.1.0 ..
- And if you think you don't change names anymore V 1.0.0.
