The only current(?) case I know of where capitalization kinda sorta
really matters is the spelling of "HIPPI". It should *not* be spelled
"HiPPI" (or "HPPI"), since that infringes on an H-P trademark ("HP-PI").
Background on that issue is included in the Forward to the HIPPI-PH spec
ANSI X3.183-1991 (R1996). See <URL:http://www.hippi.org/dPH82.pdf>
