I don't follow this reasoning. There would only ever be one proposal of a given extension, and its name would be the unprefixed name it is intended to have when ratified. There would never be a vendor specific proposal in the public wiki. If two vendors had different ideas about a given feature, I could imagine both submitting proposals with their take on that feature. In that case, each would need a different extension name and (presumably) each would implement their own proposal, complete with a vendor specific prefix.

But I don't think that's likely to happen. I think it's much more likely that, if two vendors had different ideas about the same feature, they'd hash out their differences and submit a single proposal. But even in that case, as I've said before, I think each vendor using their own prefix during development is the best approach.
