While recollecting some of the surprises, I think there's another one.
The meaning of C-x C-s is different in edit-abbrevs.

C-x C-s usually means things have been saved and are safe unless
something happen to the harddisk.

In abbrevs it is not. And sometimes one doesn't get the chance to
actually save it because emacs crashes halfway.

I would propose separating C-x C-s and C-c C-c. C-x C-s should stay
close to the global key binding.
