CoA Administrative Handbook, in section II, "Registerable Items":

    A. Names for Individuals - Names for individuals are divided into
       three administrative categories.

       1. Primary Society Name ...

       2. Alternate Society Name ...

       3. Holding Name - A purely administrative label substituted by
          the Laurel Office to register an individual's armory when
          the submitted name cannot be registered. Only the Laurel
          Office may create holding names.

It is indeed still in force.  As a pedantic note: note that it's
"armory", not just "device".  I've seen a few people submit a name and
a badge.  *shrug*

One detail not mentioned, and what probably shouldn't go into the
warranting test, but which I mention only for completeness:

the armory can be a little after the name is returned, but not too
long after.  If the kingdom sends up a name, and later sends up armory
before hearing whether the name was returned, the armory can get a
holding name.  But if the kingdom sends up a name, sees it bounce, and
THEN sends up armory: the armory bounces for lack of a name (with a
small nastygram in the LoAR).
