Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] Rule: 89

I would change the text:

Do we need something here to handle possible collisions with existing 
abbreviations? What about abbreviations that make words that may/may not be 
used elsewhere? Seems like this rule or the previous one that said they can 
be added should state some additional requirements (assuming you agree we 
should avoid these problems) Also what happens if we agree that we want an 
abbreviation and one is not in the dictionary, should we state a method for 
creating one, or should it be that we don't use the abbreviation?

I have seen a general rule for creation (when they don't exist other wise) 
to be: "Drop all the vowels from the word."
