      James has gone into a detailed reply why this could be a bad idea. I'd just
      add that it's very hard to choose a good name for a module. And it seems that
      unique k001 names never have such problems.

      Perhaps you can have a unique name for your application and in the future you
      will extract a framework from it, making your app use it and allowing other
      apps to do the same. So with time you will see whether Apache::WebMessaging is
      a good name and whether it fits well into the scope of what it's supposed to do.
