I think there is a distinction to be made between the abbreviation/shorthand JAP (note the all-caps), referring to the country, and the word Jap (or Japs) referring to people, I would certainly never use the latter. However, I agree with your post in its entirety, and JPN is a better abbreviation anyway (as well as being the ISO code for Japan) so your point is taken - thanks.
