That does sound nice, but implementing something like that as a list of
functions to be called is overly complicated.  Other web browsers allow
people to type the abbreviations and their expansions into a handy form.

So it sounds like a separate functionality from the `M-x eww' light DWIM
code.

People will send bug reports saying "M-x eww does this, and it's wrong",
and what it does depends on what they've customised.
