How about just calling the command with its full name and then only refering to the abbreviation as the code in the technical description.

Preparing for value lists is a good idea.
But what about using a different list separator character? Comma?
That could also allow to introduce lists as values for anonym-parameters if we'll ever need them.

Can you give me an example where changing of priority or default service is required?
