Do you have actual evidence of this?
Using an UpperCamelCase name for a type and the same lowerCamelCase name
for a variable of that type, where there is only one such variable in
a given context, is *extremely* common practice.
If capital letters are used only to mark word boundaries, the chances
that two names will differ in case accidentally *other* than at the
first character is pretty low.

road of spiritual inquiry. If you are absolutely cowan at ccil.org
sure you are in hell, however, then you must be
on the Cross Bronx Expressway. --Alan Feuer, NYTimes, 2002-09-20
