I can imagine.. long story short: the number formatter generates
currency format codes taking the format codes from the locale data and
inserting the CurrenySymbol from each Currency element in turn. The
legacyOnly="true" attribute tells the formatter to not generate formats
for that Currency element. A format code for such a Currency is only
displayed if a document is loaded that uses it. Not having
legacyOnly="true" on the old TRL/TL Currency made the formatter display
a duplicated list with TL formats, along with TRY/TL.

Maybe clearer, if not then just forget it ;-)

Sure, but so far existing fonts do not have that glyph and display
whatever they have there, e.g. what you see here for U+20BA: ₺

Even on http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/yeni/iletisimgm/TurkishLira.php the sign
in the text is displayed only as a graphical image, not a font glyph,
