    I am seeking some advice about how to represent a few characters in Caps.

    U+028C LATIN SMALL LETTER TURNED V (Used in the Oneida langauge)
    The capital of ‘ʌ’ should look like U+039B GREEK CAPITAL LETTER LAMDA;
    should one use this as a capital turned v? Or is having one “letter” in
    two scripts unadvisable.

    The Heiltsuk language uses a lowercase Greek lamda ‘λ’ for the [dl] sound,
    however its capital is an upside-down Latin Y (proposal in the works). My
    question here is whether there needs to be a new Latin lowercase lamda to
    pair with the soon-to-be-proposed Latin capital Lamda. I would think that
    this is similar to the epsilon ‘ε’, which has both a Greek and Latin
    codepoint. Or is it good enough to use the Greek lamda U+03BB here.
