Responding to Nick's question to users, my answer is no.
I use variable name abbreviations all the time. I find it convenient
especially during the flow of exploratory analysis, and I've never been
burned by that practice. If there were an option to prevent abbreviations,
that would be fine but I wouldn't use it.
