This is a presentation style which makes words more readable in some
conditions, notably on plates displayed on roads (cities are extremely
rarely written in lowercase, as this is more difficult to read from
far away when driving). Capitals anyway do not exclude preserving
distinctions (so there's a capital Ess-Tsett which preserves the
distinction with SS, anc accents are still present, even if they are
difficult to distinguish from far away on roads)

Deprecation only concerns long texts, presented in multiline
paragraphs, for which capitals make the text less easy to read.
