The other thing that the abbreviation list files are doing for us is
providing a user-configurable way to resolve conflicting abbreviations,
for instance IST (the Indians and the Israelis both use this, but not to
mean the same thing).  This requirement isn't ever going to go away.

Locale-specific abbreviation lists would be nice. While abbreviations are not unique globally, they have established meanings in particular countries and regions. For example, IST is not unique, but if you are in India (en_IN) and spell out IST, you probably mean Indian Standard time.
