Your answers, please!

I would like to know whether AAAA-BBBB is considered one word (as MS Word and some writing contests assert) or two (as Scrivener and other contests decree) and so, could you all please fill in this poll?

Poll #1523481 Is "aaaa-bbbb" one hyphenated word or two words, hyphenated?

Is "aaaa-bbbb" one word or two?

One word, as MS Word would count it.
2(33.3%)
Two, as Scrivener would count it.
3(50.0%)
Other. See my comment below.
1(16.7%)
