Unfortunately, even a person who uses no abbreviations may be caught
by the current policy.  Which is to say, even if I faithfully used
the TIME, TIMESTEP and TIMEUNIT keywords unabbreviated, I would still
be in a hurtful world.  :-) 

If the policy is really that TIME is ambiguous, then it shouldn't be
allowed to be compiled in the first place.
