Lets just do M3gpp and MCdma I guess.  I think 3GPP2 would be too
confusing to use along with 3GPP.  For further justification, the only
two technologies within the CDMA family are CDMA 1xRTT and EVDO and they
are quite similar.  On the other hand with 3GPP we've got GSM/GPRS/EDGE,
UMTS/HSxPA, and LTE/LTE-Advanced so it makes more sense to use the
generic name (3GPP) for all of those.
