I remember back when I was editing the plaquette for a commercial
convention our rule was never to bend to any special company casing policy
because their marketoïds all wanted to use CAPITALIZED LETTERS for their
precious COMPANY NAME and COMMERCIAL MOTTO which made the result
impossible to read by normal people.

The problem with special casing it only has some impact if you're the only
one to use it (it's a way to cheat and attract attention) but when
everyone and his mother wants it you could as well use hieroglyphs.

At least hieroglyphs are pretty.
