Comment: C: The Organisation Of Really Contrived Acronyms (Orca)
... Much like the ensEMBL/Ensembl thing, this is actually the first time that I have realised that it is "Biostar" and not "BioStars". (I thought it was "BIOinformatics STARS" - for aren't we all? :op ) ...

... OK. But what has this do to with ORCA? (XML is not in ORCA) Is it the "of" that is the issue? Or are you suggesting that it should become "Abbrevations" to let things like XML into the fold? ...
