I'm a camelCapsaPhile, and not ashamed to pronounce my preference for it for enum cases, for global functions, and global constants.

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.
