but they are not guaranteed to be written to disk, that's what I meant
by 'none' originally. I personally think 'test' describes how it might
be used and doesn't describe the durability, which is what the value of
such a property should be doing.

However 'Test' is probably fine, another term could be added if someone
comes up with a better description, so that something like these two
options would mean the same thing

derby.system.durability=test
derby.system.durability=all_bets_are_off
