That's news to me.  I thought that the official full name of the union
was still the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (in English translation).

But rather than worry about the politics of this, I'd rather do
whatever ISO 3166 does.  I just checked

(dated 2002-02-20) and I see that it still lists "Yugoslavia" as the
English short name for that country.
