"VC" is not an established acronym (see the long list at
<URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VC>).  "VCS"
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VCS> and "SCM"
<URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scm> at least get mentioned.  The
latter is probably the most widely used one, though it can be confused
with Scheme or a particular interpreter of it.

Short of an acronym, "Versioning" or "Version" might be possible.  For
registered files, using the version control system name itself might
be the way to go.
