Exactly.  Unless the end user overrides an already declared shorthand name,
we should be very happy.  Unfortunately, there is no way to keep that from
happening--so we need to document the shorthand names we have registered,
and mark them as "reserved".  The disclaimer should read "If you use any
of these shorthand names, we cannot guarantee the usability of your system".
Or something along those lines.
