model properties file (for localization)

What is the rule about how to actually enter type/aspect/property names in the .properties file for localization?

By that I mean, I read the example in Mr. Potts' excellent guide to Custom Content Models, but it doesn't mention "why" when entering the property names in the .properties file the colons ( : ) are substituted to underscores ( _ ) when identifying the namespace:name.

For example, sc:whitepaper appears to become sc_whitepaper – but no explanation is actually given as to why.

Is there a ruleset that I can follow?  For example, what if I have a colon later in a name like "sc:whitepaper:folder".  Do both colons get swapped-out for underscores???  Why?

Thanks for anyone who can shed some light on this.
