I don't want to do anything to "N H" etc., because they already do and should still say "north H" etc. I want to add "N.H." as a supported abbreviation specifically to make it say "n h", because if it isn't specifically added, what it does say might be unpredictable.
Although if we're adding "N." as "n" anyway, maybe it doesn't matter, because "N. H" would say "n h" and "N H" would still say "north h".

I have SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED a few things from my submissions, including:
because Kansas, Michigan, and Nebraska use those (respectively) for their state highways, and pronounce them as such, and
because the alternatives without periods are already expanded, so there needs to be a way to say just the letters (in case there's, say, a N.D. Somebody Rd somewhere).
