Adiós a las abreviaturas y acrónimos en los sitios web oficiales del Reino Unido

Hace unos días se publicó la noticia Goodbye, etc: why the UK government will stop using Latin abbreviations online:
RIP eg, ie and etc. Henceforth the three abbreviated Latin phrases – which stand for exempli gratia (for the sake of example), id est (that is) and et cetera (and the rest) – will stop being used on Britain’s .gov.uk websites. Eventually they will be replaced in toto by English alternatives such as such as, that is, and so on and so on.
En WCAG 2.1, el criterio de éxito 3.1.4 Abbreviations está dedicado a este problema:
(Level AAA)
A mechanism for identifying the expanded form or meaning of abbreviations is available.
