    Yes it is.
    R.O.Y.G.B.I.V. is also an acronym.

    Yeah, that's what I was assuming. That did not look well thought out at all (sorry).

    No it isn't.
    Acronyms are things that make a new word:
    SCUBA, FIFA, RADAR, PETA

    What was suggested was an initialism, this is just a jumble of letters:
    CIA, WWF, CNN, FA

    Acronyms must be pronouncable.
