And I say... The question before us is whether or not the database is
CORRECT with respect to the actual identities of these things, whatever they
may be called. They are identified in the Unicode standard as "variant
letter forms", and they should participate in case-mapping behavior just as
their "normal" counterparts; but I think their exact title-case mappings
should probably be examined, since the question has come up...
