I realize that Karl's example is a better fit to my argument. I have
appended it again at the end.

PS: Karl had written:
"▀" occurs in "Stra▀e" (street) and therefore is a very common part
of postal addresses. This fact gives opportunity to show how the
uppercasing of "▀" is really handled by official bodies:
E.g. in my car papers from 2004, issued by a communal authority,
my street is printed "KANZLEISTRA▀E".
The Deutsche Post (German Post) requires forms (for new address
after moving) to be filled in by all capital letters, but explicitly
to write "▀" not "SS".
