It *is* just sloped, but Adobe calls it "italic".
Neither boldface nor sloped is "official", but it isn't
forbidden either. Using the "regular" symbol within an
italic and/or boldface environment would be too ugly.
Other font families (incl. EC/TC) go still one step further:
The shape of the symbol is adapted to the style of the
particular font. This complies with the way other currency
symbols are treated, but it is definitely *not* the official
way. With monospaced (typewriter) fonts, however, this
cannot be avoided.
