please, let's continue to avoid abbreviations. "pcms" is cryptic to me and
likely to many others too.
Wikipedia has an article about them called "variable-message sign" (IMHO
sounds slightly nicer, leads to a shorter value and includes
"non-programmable" signs: traffic_sign=variable-message_sign, even if the
hyphen-underscore mix might lead to minor tagging inconsistencies).
The article also states that a common name in the UK is "matrix_sign" (is
ok as well, focusing more on the physical aspect than on the function).
