    OK. Then don't say it's Breton: It may occur in any Latin language, either
    as a typo, or within specific technical usages such as variable names in a C
    or Java program where a space cannot be used to separate words; here also
    it's not the normal orthograph part of the language, but a notation to allow
    more descriptive identifiers.

    If you accept typos and technical usages, these occurences of "defective"
    capitalization rules are not rare but not part of the language.
