I think it is somewhat dishonest to use this as an argument not to
change them. If you don't use them, and don't care about them, why do
you care about keeping them the same?


Because we don't want to work ourselves to death with constant changes. 
Someone will complain that we caved and will insist on changing it back to 
what it was before or someone else will come in and say it was changed the 
wrong way.  Until there is an agreed upon standard there will be no 
stability; so to not change is the best move.  When everybody in Australia 
comes to an agreement on what those abbreviations should be, let us know.
