I actually don't mind the use of foreign names, but I can understand that it could be confusing, especially for the less common ones. Full names are ideal, I don't find the official abbreviations to be such a problem if someone needs to use them due to lack of space. Some people here have an impressive list of languages and maybe they have trouble fitting them all in.

Nah, it'll look too monotonous. If you really want to know what language somebody speaks, just google it. Over time, you'll be able to recognize all the names and abbreviations. As simple as that.
