    Not a problem. We are discussing about a titlecase mapping for text labeled as Dutch (nl).

    This means that such language information is available in addition to the text.

    If the foreigner name is labeled as Dutch, it will use the Dutch rule; else it will be labelled with a different language and thus be excluded from this locale-sensitive case mapping rule...
