browser-specs uses the shortname of the spec published under https://www.w3.org/TR/ by default (when the spec has been published there). In this case, browser-specs has one `CSS21` entry and one `CSS22` entry.

The default rule that we have followed for series shortname is to drop all version numbers, hence `CSS`. I don't know if that's fantastic but at least that's consistent with the way other series are being treated.

The series shortname is actually managed by the [W3C API](https://api.w3.org/doc), which browser-specs uses as source of knowledge for W3C specs. From a W3C API perspective, `CSS2` is merely an alias to (currently) `CSS21`. browser-specs does not have a notion of aliases.

What may make this case clumsy is that CSS Snapshot specs, with shortnames such as `CSS-2015`, also end up being part of the same `CSS` series. These specs are not in browser-specs though, so I don't know if that really is a problem.
