Unless they're literate, the lower-case/upper-case distinction will be a bit difficult to follow.

I'm all in favour of authentic confusion, but won't this make it a bit hard for us non-natives?

Don't see why not myself, but I agree that you need the Wiki to sort out "final versions". After all, this is the *Glorantha* list, not one of the "don't scare the newbies" ones.
