No, they don't need to be separate per account.  They're just placeholders
for engine constraints to hold; when the template is instantiated, the
commodities on the template splits are set to be relevant for the accounts
involved.  I don't see reason why currencies should be treated specially.

A commodity with identity of (namespace,id) should (be able to) have an
immutable, single instance in the system that's shared by all referrers.
