On second thought, changing them would be a bad idea because this convention comes from the
flash.* API. In other words, it wasn't an arbitrary choice for Flex. As long as Flex is Flash-based,
acronyms should not be mixed case, so that the API looks consistent at all levels of the platform

I wouldn't object if you want to change all of them, in all classes, interfaces, functions,
etc. I would object to not being consistent.

I've followed these coding standard for some time, it makes sense to keep all code to a particular
standard, but I think is is one is a mistake.

I've so often ended up will classes like FXQSIForm, which would be so much better as FxQsiForm.
