Sure.  No argument here.

There is, however, the meta-question of how much TLA
expansion/definition does one want to do.  At the extreme, that would
have us carrying around a duplicate of the full jargon dictionary in
debian package descriptions (which we _could_ agree is just fine).

Then, of course, there's the inevitable argument about the definition of
GIS itself.  (and no, I'm not trying to start it because I have no GIS
qualifications)
