I'm not sure it really matters, except where things are in the public
API, but most people seem to be pretty consistent with mixedLowerCase
or, for constants, ALL_UPPER_CASE. I don't think anybody would care if
you changed non-public API stuff if you're already in that code to
meet those conventions. Personally, I don't find either to affect
readability much, but consistency is nice.
