I think tibbs is right in his first post

PHP Web app, (generally under /usr/share/appname) is out of php-*
namespace and is called appname (phpMyAdmin, glpi, foo)

A PHP extension, written in PHP, providing some classes, is installed
under /usr/share/php (to benefit of default include_path) and is under
the php-* namespace, so must be called php-foo (according to the actual
PHP Guidelines)

If I well understand, the question is
Should we make an exception if name already start by php to avoid

Personaly, I think php- prefix should be add to "all" extensions.
