I have a document where CLI is the initialism of both Caller Line
Identification and Command Line Interface.

Elsewhere in this document set CLI is used only in reference to Command
Line Interface so I have decided not to use the initialism for Caller Line
Identifiaction. Is there a more elegant solution?
