sorry, no. it's not a pronounceable word.

please look up 'acronym' and 'abbreviation' in an English dictionary.
All the decent dictionaries think that it has to become a word by
backformation (e.g. scuba, laser, radar) to qualify as an acronym.

following your abbreviation argument, td and th should be written TD
and TH; xhtml should have picked UPPER CASE.
