  • Information about currencies under collapsed headers is available; it is up to the UI code to respect the isExpanded flag.
  • Indices are generally based on localized alphabetic order.
  • The headers "contain" all currencies with index greater than theirs until the next header. This is not a nested structure.
  • Marking a currency as unused alters its index, as the currency is moved down the list to fit under an "Unused" header.
