I think it stands for everything!
I have a lot of original factory documentation in German.  In some places it 
refers to the "V.A.G Organisation" - the period after the G strongly implies 
that it does _not_ stand for Aktiengesellschaft, which is one word even though 
it's built out of lots of parts.  In other places (e.g., the copyright notice) 
it refers to "Volkswagen AG" - which would imply that it might.
