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.

I’d support this in principle.

The current uppercase convention is widespread enough that I’d really want some sort of alias-and-deprecate mechanism if the guideline were to change.
