Well I do not really think that one can capitalize this symbol since it
makes no sense. On the other hand I have seen many
things regarding the Greek script that make no sense. For example according
to the standard, capitalizing έ should give Έ
which is wrong. In Greek έ is not a letter but the letter ε with an accent.
Compare this with the letter å which is not a letter with
an accent but a real letter part of the Swedish alphabet.
