This way they would be visually distinct when scanning through text and make it easier to foreigners too. This seems to be the cause of the "IVs" terminology jumping even to the japanese metagame. I'm good for simplicity and plain words, I just think that we need to think of such terms as symbols instead of words that coul be lost in translation.
