In an ideal world, the preferences governing what acronyms and
abbreviations get pronounced (e.g. WAI) and which get pronounced
as the full-word expansion associated with them would be part of
_the user's personal dictionary extensions_ and not a stylesheet
or HTML structure generated by the source site author.

This would seem to be more a function of the specific
abbreviation and listener than of the document context in which
it is used.

FWIW
