That's how I generally do `personal' abbreviations.

But in the case of a remove path, I'd like to be able to still use a
consistent naming scheme for remote addresses -- even ones with hair
paths -- and have them reflected in the filenames tramp treats as

So if tramp requires `/foo|address@hidden|address@hidden/spec' to reach my
directory at gnu.org, It would be nice to be able to just say `/gnu.org:/'
-- and also have it show up that way after completion, in buffer lists,

I think that remote paths are _often_ hairy, and so deserve some
special treatment to make them more manageable.
