There really is a Craft Yarn Council.
http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/
It includes an attempt by the industry, publishers and designers to promote uniform standards for yarn, needle size, abbreviations, etc and you can see how useful such things are. But, designers still use abbreviations in different ways and usually give a glossary of terms in the pattern. These may not be standard but they do operate for the given pattern. (If only vintage patterns were so clearly defined!)
