Audubon is a difficult name, which even the authors of the standard
easily get wrong in their publications. I find adbn a very unmemnonic
abbreviation.  A-D-B-N ... I probably would have a hard time ever
typing it without looking it up, and think this is negative
dissemination. adbn has some similarity to tdwg though ...

I would much prefer a simpler "ac."
