ES System List - Implement 'shortname' field so suffixes on Collections lists can be independent from sort order?

Here's my current predicament. The internal <name> field within es_systems.cfg is currently used for two different things:
- Sort order for the System carousel (alphabetically)
- System suffix on Collection game lists (i.e. "Game Name [NES]")
That means if I want to shorten the suffix used on collection game lists from [SEGA32X] to just [32X], it has a knock-on effect for system order, with 32X now at the top of the list alphabetically instead of with other Sega systems.
Like we have a <fullname> field used by some UI elements in ES, would it be possible to add a <shortname> field and have game list suffixes use that? That way suffixes and sort orders can be set independently.
<system> <name>sega32x</name> <fullname>Sega 32X</fullname> <shortname>32x</shortname> ...
