Hi Alan,

The change is not for upgrading the currency data in generated run-time 
images, rather we see no reason of keeping it inside java.base. The 
currency data updation process is separate task and each time an 
ISO-4217 amendment version is released, the updation process should not 
modify the java.base module. This is my understanding about the change.
