Hey, Jim, not Xavier here but I'll answer anyway
The ALIASNAME (Alias) for fields was added new in 10.02 in support of Custom Tables and better control for consumers/authors such as yourself. The Alias is populated for stock/default fields both in new databases created, as well as those upgraded from a previous version.
That being said, same behavior and answer for 10.02+ (all subsequent versions).
The Alias for stock fields is generally set to the displayname of the field, with the following conformance:
a) letters set to uppercase
b) spaces replaced with underscores (_)
Hope that helps.
