> Both I2RS and ITRS seem okay.

Except that '2' gets misread as 'Z'.  It is generally a bad idea to mix
digits in with letters; all letters is the more human, the more natural,
less likely to be copied or typed in error.
I2RS is unlikely to have many existing direct matches in search engines
simply because it is unnatural.
