Ok, there seems to be an EBNF standard, according to wikipedia: ISO/IEC 14977. Then EBNF is fine with me (as long as we refer to this standard).

I had only heard the term EBNF being used in the generic sense (as used at the top of the wikipedia page: "EBNF is a family of metasyntax notations").

In that case: I couldn't care less whether we use EBNF or ABNF.
