I don't want to object here, I am actually ok with 1959acad, just some
clarification: I don't think "1959" is iconic. Actually, vast majority of
users of academic orthography wouldn't recall this date; the word "academic"
is more important. Unfortunately, Yury made it clear that he is against all
forms of "akadem", "akad", "acad" and so on.
