--- Comment #45 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
To UX-Advise to move this forward...

But my take remains that the original implementation applying the
SENTENCE_CASE, via ICU transliteration, needs additional control logic. 

Believe we need to handle two cases for applying SENTENCE_CASE in edit engine

1) Case -- an active selection made:

   expand only to the ICU -word boundaries- that hold the selection and apply
ICU transliteration. Treat that "temp" string as the sentence--and apply
transliteration.  Since the transliteration of the selection likely cross
sentence boundaries, would need to break selection into multiple "temp" strings
(an opening, middle(s), a closing)--but honor the selections at the word
boundaries as the range.

2) Case --  only text cursor focus, no selection made:

   expand only to the ICU -sentence boundaries- that hold the text cursor and
apply ICU transliteration.

The current implementation for sentence case always performs the expansion when
applying SENTENCE_CASE transliteration, with or without selection--that's the
issue. Current implementation probably could/should be retained for a no
selection case, but need to provide new code for the with selection handling.
