BOF is a very common term used at technical conferences.  It seems that
every technical conference I hear about has BOF sessions.  I think
nobody realised until now that the term is so unknown in other
contexts.  Nobody was trying to be exclusive here.  Now that we know,
I assume the web pages will be clarified if they aren't already.

Also - you have an acronym dictionary project for purposes quite like
this, right?
