I certainly qualify as someone who edits everything by hand because I use only Emacs for creating DocBook documents and I prefer the long names. 

PSGML allow me not to type element names, so their length is irrelevant, but, when it displays a menu of legal element names at a given point, it is much better when they are readable, unless waht happens with LinuxDoc, where PSGML displays a meaningless list of two-letter acronyms, thus forcing me to read the documentation.
