In section 22.214.171.124.1 [locale.moneypunct.members], frac_digits() returns type "int". This implies that frac_digits() might return a negative value, but a negative value is nonsensical. It should return "unsigned".
Similarly, in section 126.96.36.199.2 [locale.moneypunct.virtuals], do_frac_digits() should return "unsigned".
Regardless of whether the return value is int or unsigned, it's always conceivable that frac_digits might return a nonsensical value. (Is 4294967295 really any better than -1?) The clients of moneypunct, the get and put facets, can and do perform range checks.
