It seems funny that a two or three character script, like Yi, must have
a weird name just so it has four alpha characters (Yiii).

In the code lists at http://www.unicode.org/iso15924/iso15924-codes.html
the 4-letter script codes are shown capitalised, e.g. Arab not arab,
Armn not armn, etc.. Is this intentional? Should the codes always be
capitalised? Does it matter if they are not?
