No, we don't. This actually bothers me everyday, but I keep  
forgetting to ask everyone about it.

Does anyone object to shortening the prefixes?

* [microformats-discuss]
     * [mf-dis]
     * [mdiscuss]
     * [mdis]
* [microformats-announce]
     * (follow same convention as used above)

Thoughts? I want feedback because this is likely to break lots of  
people's filtering rules.
