The CSS Working Group just discussed `hyphens:auto should not hyphenate Capitalized words`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: Add A note to the spec and close with no normative change`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;Rossen_> Topic: hyphens:auto should not hyphenate Capitalized words<br>
&lt;Rossen_> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/3927<br>
&lt;una> florian: so the issue being raised is that in some langs, when words are capitalized you should hyphenate and in some they should not<br>
&lt;una> ... we should bake this into the spec<br>
&lt;una> ... i'd like to close this as wontfix or rejected bc we already say this is dict based within the logic of the lang-based resource<br>
&lt;dauwhe> q+<br>
&lt;una> fantasai: I would go a little farther and say that we should only put a note and not change normative requirements and talk about proper nouns<br>
&lt;una> ... it can suggest i.e. in English you may want to supress hyphenation words that are proper nouns and mixed case<br>
&lt;una> ... I would like to leave the heuristics up to the user agent and not bake anything into the spec<br>
&lt;Rossen_> ack dauwhe<br>
&lt;una> dave: in english should capital letters be hyphenated? maybe... I wouldn't want anythign baked into the spec that says what should happen<br>
&lt;astearns> s/dave/dauwhe/<br>
&lt;una> AmeliaBR: the rec is more to add a suggested note to add in your hyphenation dictionaries you should consider this<br>
&lt;una> ... at least one browser has agreed<br>
&lt;una> ... not sure this is a normative requirement<br>
&lt;una> Rossen_: so proposed resolution for this is to add a note and no normative change<br>
&lt;una> RESOLVED: Add A note to the spec and close with no normative change<br>
&lt;una> florian: myles, a while back you raised 3566 - should we reopen?<br>
