This is a bad idea, imho. An all-lowercase entity name is better than the
fancy uppercasing (IMHO only uppercase letters should have capitalised
entity names). Also shortening it one letter does no good. Everybody will
know the currency unter the name Euro, the currency code being EUE, not EUR.

A lowercase name is also in line with ¥.
