No not new indeed. TDM TLA's exists.
In 1989, a random of the journalistic persuasion asked hacker Paul Boutin "What do you think will be the biggest problem in computing in the 90s?" Paul's straight-faced response: "There are only 17,000 three-letter acronyms." (To be exact, there are 26^3 = 17,576.) 
To get -a bit- more on toppic, we could be more creative than having a TLA for a module or a very detailed explaining name. Every tried looking for a module that does "something" with taxonomy? There are at least 10 modules with taxonomy in its name .
Now its up to the developer of a module to name its child, but lets get a bit more creative. There is nothing wrong with calling a module like Taxonomy Access Controle, "Cats and Dogs Control". I installed "Markdown with SmartyPants" just because it smelled funny. I know that when its rather specific, it doesnt hurt to have desciptive names like ""Amazon Search" but we can do better than having a module named "Members".
Just imagine, Dries didnt came up with "Drupal" as a name but "CMS".  and
