Hello Dan,

I think that if we decide that we want to force things such as
namespaces to do FOO == %AB%CD%EF, then it would be easy to at
the same time also teach them that %AB%CD%EF == %Ab%cd%eF, and
so on. So for namespace purposes, 'always escape to upper case'
doesn't really cut it.

Regards,    Martin.
