Currency names with "&" when ISO 4217 does not use the "&"

Description

ISO 4217 does not use the & in currency names. Why does CLDR use the & in currency names? Does the currency name need to follow the CLDR decision for the territory names?

<currency type="STD">
<displayName>São Tomé &amp; Príncipe Dobra (1977–2017)</displayName>
<displayName count="one">São Tomé &amp; Príncipe dobra (1977–2017)</displayName>
<displayName count="other">São Tomé &amp; Príncipe dobras (1977–2017)</displayName>
</currency>
<currency type="STN">
<displayName>São Tomé &amp; Príncipe Dobra</displayName>
<displayName count="one">São Tomé &amp; Príncipe dobra</displayName>
<displayName count="other">São Tomé &amp; Príncipe dobras</displayName>

<currency type="TTD">
<displayName>Trinidad &amp; Tobago Dollar</displayName>
<displayName count="one">Trinidad &amp; Tobago dollar</displayName>
<displayName count="other">Trinidad &amp; Tobago dollars</displayName>

  • We try to make the country and currency names shorter to prevent UI overflow problems.

  • We want to have the names correspond as much as possible.

We should document that in the spec to make it clearer what our practice is.
