[admin] url for w3c egov site?

Someone pointed out recently that the /2007/ in our URLs, like

	http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/
	http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/IG/wiki/Main_Page
	... etc

is confusing and unnecessary.  (It comes from a W3C practice that made a
lot more sense when it started in 1998 than it does now.)  I've gotten
approval to remove it.  The old URLs with /2007/ in them will be
redirected, so no links or bookmarks should break.

The question is, whic of these would we prefer:

      http://www.w3.org/eGov     (uppercase G)
or    http://www.w3.org/egov     (lowercase G)

Mixed case URLs tend to be harder to get right, and I don't think people
will misunderstand "egov", so I have a mild preference for the second
option.  Any thoughts?
