Unless I hear otherwise, I will correct all references in the documentation to use the form
"Axis".

But "axis" is an English word in addition to being to an acronym, unlike
"XML" or "JDBC."  Indeed I think the semantics of axis-the-word are quite
descriptive/useful; in particular, I like " a main line of direction,
motion, growth, or extension " from Merriam Webster's.

I'm in favor of sticking with "Axis" in the documentation but fully expect
that people will use both forms as suits their tastes.

I tend to be nit-picky about these kinds of things. 
It has always bothered me that "GLUE" is correct even though it's not an
acronym 
and "Axis" is correct even though it is an acronym. 
My vote is to make a switch and start referring to it as "AXIS".
