Based on:

   http://www.nbp.org/ic/nbp/braille/capitalize.html?id=fAaA5kfV
   http://www.nfb.org/nfb/Braille_Certification.asp (the disclaimer)

   http://www.loc.gov/nls/

...I have left it with a lowercase "b", which seems to be consistent with 
the writing system being a part of our culture, rather than still being a 
new invention.
