I wouldn't hesitate AT ALL to use Mica's for VCO's.  I used Mica caps
for the VCO circuits I designed 17 years ago and they still work just

Unless you are Mr. Chowning and have some new fangled retro analog
bent, I wouldn't be too concerned about your VCO meeting some silly
"modern standard" (and is it IEEE?).  If it works for you, it works.
If it doesn't, pick a different part.  It's not hard to swap out a
silly cap.
