Rather a nit and I don't care, but OED is a widely known term for OED so if OED is what is meant, then shouldn't it be oed?  Of course there's that oed thing.  (Archives not working for me, so I don't have context of previous discussion on this).

Hundreds of dictionaries are published by the Oxford University Press. This subtag refers to the OED orthography, or the orthography of the *Ox*ford *En*glish *Dict*ionary.
