The meaning "Serbia and Montenegro" was introduced relatively recently
(a little more than a year ago), was immediately received with alarm by
many in the IT sector. There were vain attempts to get it reversed, and
that failure was an impetus to introduce protection against such changes
in the revision of RFC 3066. I am not aware of "CS" being used in the IT
sector with the new meaning, though cannot guarantee that.
