I have seen m17n come out of japan and I saw a similar term, algorithm misapplied in a totally unrelated context at http://www.christadelphian.org/MEMBERS/index.htm:
"Welcome to the "inside" of C17g.
that's Christadelphian.org shortened - there are 17 characters between the C and the g of the name... it saves a lot of typing"

Not a trend but a meme....
Mark, I am curious why you find this term so distasteful? Is it the algorithm itself or just a general objection to acronyms and the like? Or something else entirely?
