How would we treat letter case as of UTR#21? Even using full stop for the
compulsory neutral tone turns up wrong title case (example in Python):
>>> "bu jy.daw".title()
Though in my eyes it should be
Would UTR#21 even handle those cases? Would such a character fall into the
"Letter Modifier" class?
Python btw has a buggy implementation for UTR#21, so this example is as far as
you can go.
