Hi Scott,
yes, thats the idea. It didn't get picked up though, so I am not sure if there are any shortnames in existence that can act as an alias for a dataset.
nub, itis, col were supposed to be such shortnames.

If in general people find this a useful thing we could try to revive it.
UUID can be a pain for humans.

 described at https://www.gbif.org/developer/species

I assume "uuid|shortname" is uuid  OR a shortname. So perhaps shortname is a short name for a dataset?

Thanks, Scott
