>> SE-0005 "Better Translation of Objective-C APIs Into Swift Proposal” in Proposed Solution # 6 "Lowercase values" suggests “to lowercase non-prefixed values whenever they are imported” with an example of URLHandler property becoming urlHandler. Being long time Cocoa developer, I object to this particular example and would like to suggest to keep capitalized any well known acronyms, like ASCII, PDF, URL etc. as they are now in Cocoa. Thank you!
