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.

See ya
