It sounds like you want to *make* case distinctions for your own
purposes, not respect them where they already exist. Maybe your
meaning of the word "respect" differs from mine?
Your capitalization of that last name as 'Atrom suggests that your
understanding of Klingon orthography is faulty. Regardless of your
wider experience and credentials, and despite your definite and
acknowledged contributions to the Klingon-speaking community, you
haven't demonstrated that you know enough about actually *using*
Klingon to make appropriate suggestions for changing it.
