I'm following this as well. Whether they are casing is of interest.
For my part I wonder if the quatrillo and tresillo are related to
modified q and c or to a Latin abbreviations of some kind. The name
leads us to 4 and 3 of course but regarding their origins, k' < q and
q' < c makes some sense. Tresillo might be U+0188 for instance and
cuatrillo, hm, might be U+0261. Though neither of those unifications
is really satisfactory.
