I'll bet the next edition does!

But your point is well-taken. I would imagine this dictionary was compiled
"after the fact," so to speak. It's certainly a useful tool, but nothing
can substitute for watchful eyes and ears. I often encounter
three-letter-acronyms that can have meanings or pronunciations other than
intended. And you're not likely to find these listed anywhere.
