The titlecase algorithm in UTF#21 is a generic one. It cannot cover all
uses of all characters in all languages and notations. If you want to
guarantee a certain result for special notations you would need to
either provide a special algorithm or correct the results by hand.
Adding a special period, just to get special behavior, is out of the
question (meaning, the UTC will never agree to this).
