Disclaimer: I'm a naysayer on this; I think it's basically impossible
that there will be consensus and uniformity in practice.  So ignore me
:-) But for what it's worth, I think if you want even a shot at
consensus, this is probably not the place to introduce an overhaul of
traditional usage.  And yes, they're abbreviations of (in some cases)
plurals already :-)
