I wasn't really suggesting changing them, as they would break a whole load of peoples code,
just  pointing out that this is a mistake that leaves well named classes unreadable.

It also doesn't help with interfaces and Adobe convention of using a capital I's. If acronyms
weren't all uppercase, an interface would be clear to see as it would be a capital I, followed
by another capital letter. If the second letter wasn't capitalised, you'd know it was an interface.

For instance

ID3Info, interface or class? Id3Info would have made it clear that it was a class.

of the platform stack.
