Fair enough, of course.

At this point I consider any of the alternatives to 1959acad to be  
inadequate, precisely because they refer solely to an institution  
rather than to an orthography.

If Mark and Ihar are OK with the revision I have proposed, we can go  
ahead with it with their names on it. If they don't want that, perhaps  
Yury or I or both of us will sponsor it.

I am rejecting "acade" and "academ" and "akademia" because they are  
too generic.
