pointed out, USAFX are non-conforming reporting marks in any case.
The "non-conforming" part may not be serious. Remember that railroads were permitted to spell out their name in place of initials. If it was "conforming" to spell out "PENNSYLVANIA" I fail to see a grave problem with "USAFX." On the issue of initials only, let's don't forget D&RGW and NC&StL.
