I think you've missed the point, which is that the programmer can't
possibly know in advance which capitalization is correct, if she's
trying to build a system that works for different localizations.

But as Peter remarks nearby, this discussion is wasted anyway, because
there is only one correct answer: whatever Oracle does with these
cases is what to_char() should do.
