Yeah, I know that argument, and happen to agree with it. I believe last
time it came up a flamewar^W spirated discussion ensued. Was a consensus

If so, a lot of descriptions violate that consensus, and we should find
an automated way of checking this (to the extent possible; proper nouns
do need to be capitalized always).
