My view is that it is actually not worth the time to fight CTM through
in this committee if there is not an apriori understanding that

   (a) these shorthand exist with good reason, and
   (b) will stay, because people just use it,
   (c) and should therefore be standardized.

If it does not happen inside WG3, then it will then most probably
happen outside, either as industry standard or hosted by someone
else. Suboptimal choice, but...
