The first time an ACRONYM is used would declare it, though a LINK 
referring to definitions, or optional ID attributes to differentiate 
between conflicts would help.

A <LINK REL=MetaDefs HREF=...> in the HEAD element, with expanded and
shared definitions for ACRONYMs, PERSONs, PLACEs, CITEs, et cetera.
