My apologies... the quote marks around the second mention of John Aloysius Pilkington-Doe are superfluous. Please ignore.

There is one area wherein the use of quotes about an acronym in parentheses serves a useful purpose: legal documents.

John Aloysius Pilkington-Doe ("the Claimant") indicates that wherever the phrase "the Claimant" appears in subsequent text in the same document, it refers to none other than "John Aloysius Pilkington-Doe".
