fr_CH: thousand separator should be space, matching fr, not apostrophe

Description

Deleted Component: other

We have a report that the thousand separator for fr_CH should not be apostrophe, but rather space like in base locale fr.

See attached screenshots taken from several Swiss news sites.

From our reporter:
-See this example taken from a typography guidelines for French published documents at CERN:
http://service-translation-dsutm.web.cern.ch/service-translation-dsutm/fr/Guide/Guide%20de%20typographie.pdf

See section called: "Écriture en chiffres arabes"
"Les nombres supérieurs ou égaux à 1 000 s’écrivent par tranches de trois chiffres, séparés par un espace insécable (pas de point, pas de virgule et pas d’apostrophe de séparation.)"
(Numbers greater than or equal to 1 000 are written in sets of three figures,
separated by a non-breaking space ( no dots, no comma, neither a separative apostrophe))

-Here's another resource from the official website of the Canton of Vaud (third largest of Swiss cantons):
http://www.vd.ch/fileadmin/user_upload/typo3_canton_vaud/fichiers_pdf/charte-redactionnelle-etat.pdf

See section called: "Règles typographiques" Composition des nombres
("Typographic rules" Composition of numbers)
"Lorsque le nombre dépasse quatre chiffres, on sépare par un léger espace
chaque tranche de trois chiffres, à partir de la droite : [...]"
(When the number surpasses 4 figures, each three figure set will be separated by a space [...])

-Here's a third reference from a doctoral program in educational science :
http://education.cuso.ch/fileadmin/education/document/episode1_1_1_1_1_1_1_1_1.pdf

"Écrire les nombres en chiffres (Writing numbers as numerals)
Règles d'écriture: les nombres en chiffres exprimant une quantité s'écrivent par tranches de trois chiffres, séparées par une espace insécable"
(Rules for writing: Numerals expressing a quantity are written in sets of three figures separated by a non-breaking space)
