Do you have any views as to how ECO should be referenced in the annotations of external groups? Currently GO uses acronyms of the evidence codes (e.g. IEA, IDA etc), which are extremely popular with users, as they far more immediately informative to viewers of individual annotations than ECO ids, and reduces the wordiness that displaying a full evidence code name would involve.
Therefore would ECO ntend that such acronyms could still be a valid way of referencing ECO ids? And would you envisage the continued to use some of the current GO evidence codes that have been moved into ECO synonyms. Or would ECO suggest new primary acronyms that fit the new ECO term names?
