It's my turn for a dumb question!

I've been hearing talk around the shop about a new version of COBOL that allows very long data names. I've searched the Web and IBM and was only able to find vague references to COBOL3 in CICS manuals.

Does anyone have a link to more information? I really don't want to be the last kid on my block to get my super-secret decoder ring!

I will admit, when it comes to generating XML, that would be helpful....those dang squatboxen people keep coming up with bigger and bigger tags.....
