Why is TR capitalized?
I'm thinking 
1) it is easier to type in lowercase
2) an abbreviation is typically all caps in writing.

We have a mixed bag, so I'd vote for some consistency either way.

Subject: Lowercase TR shortnames for svg specs

just noticed today that the redirects for the TR pages for the svg specs go from lowercase to uppercase.

I'd prefer the lowercase versions be the canonical urls, instead of the uppercased ones.

Some examples of the redirects today:
http://w3.org/TR/svg -> http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/

http://w3.org/TR/svg11 -> http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/

http://w3.org/TR/svg2 -> http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2/

What do people here think about changing the redirects to be the other way around? SVG -> svg and so on.
