I propose "smw" prefix.
Standard MediaWiki URL format -$1

Hmm, I'm a bit hesitant here. mw: is the prefix for smw: is pretty close for something that isn't directly related to the Wikimedia Foundation / MediaWiki. semantic: might be a better choice. Thoughts? --MZMcBride 14:48, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
"SMW" is long-established acronym for this extension. But I realized that there is another important reason against the use of its: "smw" is ISO 693-3 code for Sumbawa language!
In my opinion, it should be generally stated as a global interwiki coding constraint:
  • one-, two-and three-letter codes must be reserved for internal purposes
    1. one-letter codes used for Wikimedia "educational" projects (current and future)
      for "Wikimedia-internal" using only, not for mw distributive (where used "full" interwiki as "Wikipedia:" etc.)
      other (non-Wikimedia) projects may use such codes for their own internal purposes
    2. two- and three-letter codes used as ISO 693 language codes for standardized marking language sections of various projects
  • for other purposes used only four-character codes and longer
If we follow this principle, the only one exception is just "mw" interwiki prefix (fortunately, it is not used for any language). --Kaganer 22:33, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
According to the above, I propose "semantic-mw" prefix for project. --Kaganer 22:33, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Hmm? Nobody interested? --Kaganer 00:25, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
