For Captain, the abbrev and its "expansion" should have the same length,
so absug-hint-threshold should already skip them.

For auto-correct, it might be the case that the wrong spelling is
shorter by absug-hint-threshold, but then you could also argue that if
you often misspell a word and it gets auto-corrected and the wrong
spelling is shorter, you might take it as a feature and consciously use
the shorter/wrong spelling and rely on the abbrev to auto correct it.
