The former has long been shortened to, P&I. Whereas the latter has recently been shortened to PorI, to make the distinction as to which documents we were referring to.

Why the change? It could be as simple as a legal means to distinguish political rights (privileges) from natural rights (immunities), in the Lockean sense (this is my best guess).

Edited: I'm closing this thread, and have started another thread on the decision itself. Thanks to everyone for contributing.
