Hi Alexander,

might sound questionable, but it IMO was a quite reasonable way to integrate
both acronyms and abbreviations (so I don't like the decision to pass on
acronym elements, as I knew it by the way), maybe with an option to include a
kind of term element as well [1] (even by replacing the other two elements).

So that's been the reason why I mentioned it before.

Best regards,
