I agree that no organization like ISO or ANSI created a specification
for that code.
But that does NOT prevent from being a standard. (Think "defacto standard".)
You do NOT need the blessing of any organization to get a standard.
You just need enough people (within a group) using it.
"CDN" is used by ALOT of people.
