English users are currently happy, DNS is "case preserving", so they can
get Microsoft.com or AAA.com or CamelCase.com if they want.
I tried www.MicroSoft.com and www.AAA.com, and in both cases, the
upper-case letters get changed to lowercase by DNS (*not* as a result of

the current (ASCII-only) DNS, or can it?
