I know this ship has long sailed, but why didn't the team choose lowerCamelCase for these? The current style seems inconsistent and requires an “instances are lowerCamelCase, aside from Enums” clarification.

Using lowerCamelCase makes sense to me; I've proposed a similar change in the past. Doug, was any decision about enum constant case made as part of the API naming guidelines?
