This issue has been discussed pretty extensively on Usenet, coming to the conclusion that <acronym> and <abbr> aren't very useful categories (at least in the supposed context of speech browsers, where it's most important to distinguish between acronyms and initialisms), and that the examples in the spec show distinct lack of clue. Maybe this will get sorted out in XHTML 2.0.
