If it's supposed to be a joke, then it doesn't make me laugh, and let me tell you why:
It is neither American English nor easy to remember
Why does a good thing have to be American? What's so bad in being European, or Asian, African, Australian? That's not politically correct (for Americans) and insulting (for all the others, to whom I belong).
his name has four consecutive consonants, this is clearly unacceptable
Have you ever counted how many consecutive consonants are in abstract, breaststroke, offspring, catchphrase? 1
Besides, if the Schwartzian Transform bothers you, just become well acquainted with it, and call it ST, like its friends do.
