Nice list, only think I can suggest is:

 

Add 'Prez = President (Illegal unit)' - or something similar, so that there is no confusion mistaking pres for prez, or vice versa.

 

Many wont be hindered by this..but new players may! Wouldn't like them to be in a game and someone say 'pres' and they then make a president :p
