Proposal: Shouldn't the glyph be amended to match the natural language?
Nothing of this is really natural. If you go by what most people do, you would have to write FUßBALL.
In my new edition of the first German translation of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, the editor and I made sure that the cakes said “Iẞ MICH!” and not “Iß MICH!”. :-) 

And the correct spelling (modern) would have been "Iss mich" (or capitalized version as in your case).
