If you have a preference to have keep it in the spec then I can leave it 
there. All it means that every implementation would need to support this 
property and this format, if it were JDK specific then it would need to 
be documented somewhere else although it could be the same format as 
what we have now and it would need to continue to support 
lib/currency.properties for compatibility reasons.

So do you agree with the proposed property name and the minor tweak to 
the spec?
