I just fixed http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSI to include this acronym, 
and the page I found to point it toward:  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapshot_isolation#Making_Snapshot_Isolation_Serializable 
doesn't suggest it's anything other than a theoretical concept so far.  
I think there's a very real academic possibility for your work here 
too.  I'd be writing to the ACM about your upcoming paper "Implementing 
Serializable Snapshot Isolation in a MVCC Database" if I were you.  
After 9.1 ships, of course.  (Be good to update the Wikipedia pages on 
this at that point, too, once there's a long-term documentation URL for 9.1)
