Latest trunk allows you this if you include new syshelpers unit:

True.ToString;                                          // True
True.ToTrueFalseString(scfUpperCase);                   // TRUE
True.ToString('OnState', 'OffState');                   // OnState
True.ToString('Running', 'Stopped', scfUpperCase);      // RUNNING

It also allows you to populate TBitFormatSettings with your strings for TRUE and FALSE and gives you method CopyToDefaultBoolStrings. This changes boolean to string text outputs in syshelpers and some other places. Maybe that could fit your bill.
