Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio: He
will remain in being addressed as His Holiness Benedict XVI. Will be the Bishop-Emeritus of Rome
H.E. Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio

"He will not return to the  cardinalatial dignity, his title will be His Holiness  Benedict XVI."

In analogy with what happens in the case of the other bishops on finishing  their episcopal ministry they are called bishops-emeriti, therefore I think we can say that on resigning, the  Pope is in turn called as the  Bishop-Emeritus  of Rome. "
