We do use abbreviations for keys/values: for example mtb, bmx, hgv, psv,
url, rcn.

In this particular case, I think more people have familiarity with the
abbreviation than with the full term, so I see here nothing wrong with
sticking to the abbreviation. Or are you proposing to start using
uniform_resource_locator as well?
