    I'd be very surprised if that's the case.

In the context of GNU, anyone who sees "ELPA" and "GNU ELPA" will
assume that the former is short for the latter.  If the person has
recently paid attention to an explanation of the difference, he may
remember the difference, but otherwise he will naturally assume they
are the same.
