That could be done. The problem is that there are a few places in which
node.short is used which aren't intended for display on the UI. So the
node module would have to get a new function that was specifically
designed to format node identifiers for ui output. That would be
perfectly reasonable to do though.
A word is nothing more or less than the series of historical
connotations given to it. That's HOW we derive meaning, and to claim
that there is an arbitrary meaning of words above and beyond the way
people use them is a blatant misunderstanding of the nature of language.
