If you use a timer, there's no reason AFAICT to *not* create a minor mode for it.

Good point, thanks!

Another radical way you could do this: create a major(!) mode which derives from text-mode but unbinds all vowel keys. That way you can't even type vowel...

You could come up with some way to type vowels in those cases that you do want to have a vowel (e.g., when a word starts with one). Perhaps bind the capital vowels to a command that inserts the lower-case variant (so typing `A` would actually insert 'a' in the buffer), if your shorthand involves not using capital letters. Or create a command that asks for a vowel and inserts it, and bind it to a key, say `=`. Then you'd have to type `=a` to actually insert 'a' into the buffer. (You may be able to use a custom input method to do that, actually).
