Subject:  Acronym for Cougar?

Since Cougar is experimental, is there any chance we could 
get acronym back in there?

It would be helpful because: 

1. It would give the author a hook for assigning 
styles to acronyms using a shorter (and maybe more 
meaningful) means than <span class=acronym>.

2. It would allow HTML to be written in a way that 
would be more accessible to speech-enabled browsers. 
For example, "NPS" would be pronounced "en Pea ess", 
not "nips"

If Acronym isn't likely to get in there, would someone 
from W3C please make a statement on that, so I can 
take it out of my documents now. I put it in over a 
year ago to make my pages more accessible those of 
limited vision -- CYA for future equal-access-to 
-government-facilities plans.
