I think it would be great if you could force abbreviations using Maplex, rather than simply having the labels abbreviated only when space is a concern. This would be useful when labeling streets - my dataset may have "Road", "Street" etc. spelled out fully but the only way for me to standardize everything to "Rd", "St" etc. is to actually edit the data. Would love if I could use my trusty abbreviation dictionary to force all abbreviations.
Marking as Already Offered (at the time of submission, which we understand was quite some time ago) per @SamuelTroth2 comment.
Abbreviate and truncate labels—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation
"Translation entries always apply to all words of a string. Translation entries may be useful when you translate a map into another language, want to remove words from a label string, or want all occurrences of a word to be abbreviated. Use this type of abbreviation to shorten long street names, such as Martin Luther King Boulevard to MLK Blvd."
