Almost. The issue is POST and PUT with P. Two letters could do the job.
That said GET, POST and HEAD are massively used compared to the others, so maybe there's room to change PUT identifier as U, but that would confuse people and implementers.

C CO CONNECT
D DE DELETE
G GE GET
H HE HEAD
O OP OPTIONS
P PO POST
P PU PUT
T TR TRACE
