That seems to be correct:
> Q: Why is Wiki always written with a capital W?
> A: "Wiki" (with a W) is shorthand for the WikiWikiWeb (aka
> WardsWiki), i.e. this site. "wiki" (with a w) means "a site that
> operates along the same principles as Wiki", probably running
> one of the WikiWikiClones. See WikiHasManyMeanings for more on
> when to capitalize "wiki".
