This "旅游局" one is semi debatable, I think... however if you search in China (google.cn) you will find it only pulls up Government websites (one exception only).
So in a sense, yes - it is definitely "Tourism Board" (department) used by the China Government as Touchring suggests.

I agree this makes it hard when choosing .cn IDNs - namely to know for sure, what will later be considered a Government reserved term is difficult to know 100%.

I understand there is an arbitration process for CNNIC (which is run in Hong Kong from memory) - is there any ability to take these types of things to arbitration?
Any thoughts from others?

PS: are your other names similar which have been cancelled?
