I don't think it's widely established. E.g. compared to "VLAN", it
certainly isn't. "FDB" is also pretty much non-googlable.
"ForwardingDatabase" is imho much nicer and easier to
search for. Also, it's not like you type those things by hand every
day, so saving a few characters should not be a consideration.
