Honestly yes. I've suffered the pain of trying to work out tables like "madxdat"
too many times. Long table names are least of our problems in terms of 
development slowness.

Your example is 41 characters: think of it as 24 to spare ;-)

Nevertheless I'm not arguing this is a priority for all developers immediately.
It's reasonable to do as we're doing: make sure new SQL is readable, and slowly 
migrate the
existing stuff. "sed" and "find" can automate a lot of simple name changes.
