It would be nice if dir /fx would use short names in the full path rather than just the final directory.

Actually, this looks like a bug... from DIR in the help file

/F Display each filename with its drive letter and path in a single column, without other information. If you use /F with /X, the "short" version of the entire path is displayed.
Code:
[C:\]dir /f /x
C:\BIN
C:\Brother
C:\cygwin64
C:\DL
C:\Games
C:\Logs
C:\MinGW
C:\MSI
C:\PerfLogs
C:\PROGRA~1
C:\PROGRA~2
C:\Python34
C:\Sandbox
C:\Users
C:\Windows
C:\Windows.old
C:\RHDSetup.log
C:\SBC2SE~1.LOG

[C:\]cd "Program Files"

[C:\Program Files]dir /f /x
C:\Program Files\.

@rconn @Charles Dye Does this need to be moved to the Support forum as a bug report or will it be noticed from here?
