The markup extensions recipe raises a flag if abbreviations are
treated as normal text. Other markup extensions plus the page
rename recipe act according to that flag.
A solution that changes the wikiword pattern to require 2 or more
lower case characters will also work, shown below.

The markup extensions recipe tested the following pattern, which
is currently disabled:
## require 2 lower and upper case characters for a WikiWord
$WikiWordPattern = '[[:upper:]][[:alnum:]]*(?:[[:upper:]][[:lower:]0-9][[:lower:]0-9]|[[:lower:]0-9][[:lower:]0-9][[:upper:]]|[[:lower:]0-9][[:upper:]]+[[:lower:]0-9])[[:alnum:]]*';
A modified abbreviation pattern is:
Try that, which incorporates Patrick's suggested sequence change.
