There was a naming change between SQL-92 and SQL:1999, according to the
mentioned book.
  The ":" is because the standard's name has been brought in line with
ISO's naming standards. The expansion to four digits was because of the
general year-2000 trend.

Yes, that's ironic. But I have the book right here. There is clearly a ":"
in the name on the front page, as well as in the colophon.
