That is incorrect - CVSNT are 5 letters, and that is all.

Since about version 2.0.58 CVSNT has supported both reserved and unreserved 
versioning (-kx means 'reserved').  The CVSNT project has generally not 
limited it's features to those that support a particular ideology or 
methodology - rather to provide versioning tools that are useful for the 
widest number of people and processes.

I know some people never updated CVSNT beyond 2.0.51 who strongly disagreed 
with our decision to support reserved versioning in CVSNT.

I've rather taken lately to describing CVSNT as NoT CVS, I think it 
communicates fairly clearly that CVSNT is somehow related to CVS but does 
have considerably different features...
