The point of the message was somewhat "spurious argumentation" on my
part. That is what the subject meant, I realize now it is open to
misinterpretation. The point of my message was that case is important
to differentiate different objects, and that should not be used to
differentiate different uses of the same object. (In my opinion of
course). I was also trying to make the point, that if I use case to
differentiate different usages, there is not nearly enough case
information, and maybe I would want to use fonts and other information
for that. What if there were two levels of backquoting? Would you want
another degree of freedom? That was the point of the message.
