As far as I'm concerned, Pluto is a planet.

Yes, and Pluto is not a planet.

People will still know what you mean when you say K-T
Just as they will know you are talking about Pluto if you refer to the ninth planet

"K/T" has a nice ring to it and will take a good
generation to disappear,
I'd think. "K-Pg" is a bit clumsy and I didn't know
