They will also wipe out attributes. So silly that they do not sync from GMB on setup to Moz, that would solve all this as an issue and leave service areas alone since they are not supported.
Which brings to mind a question, will Moz wipe out services? Q&A? Shortnames?
I will only say this, I do spam reporting for my clients on a daily basis, this helps them rank better when I report profiles doing exactly what you are talking about doing. A few months ago, you could have done it no harm, no foul. Now, you do it and get reported or caught by the algo and you...
How I handle this is quite simple. Think about short and easy to recall, like a domain name.

I respect your opinion, and testing will show everything. However, I chose that as a shortname for branding purposes and well because it was short.
We know they are 301 redirects, however, A. We were told this B. Check it yourself at Redirect Check (Headers come back as 301)
I do not...
ShortNames do not help from a SEO perspective, that is not the intention for them. They are treated like 301 redirects in Google's eyes.
