I don't find anything representing 890.  I only see the YU
which is now CS, but not the old YU.  No real problem in that
case, because RfC 1766 was published after the old region 890
split, no old sl-YU / sh-YU / hr-YU invalidated by the new YU.

They could pick a C as in CH justifying to keep CS.  If that
example is too convoluted replace it by a split of GE, where
one part keeps GE.

It's not your fault and no fight, it's a problem in the design.
