You're correct as far as each individual term is concerned, but I'm not
sure the same logic applies to the name as a whole.  In my opinion, "Wiki
Med Foundation" and "Wikimedia Foundation" are indeed so similar as to
cause confusion between the two, particularly when the new organization
*is* intending to use the same colors/logos/slogans/etc. as the WMF.
