Agreed that change to naming conventions should be a commit independent 
of other changes.

We did discuss the switch to uppercase "VIA" some time ago on the 
mailing list (pretty sure it was mail and not IRC but I may be 
mistaken), the rational was to use the upper case for "VIA" since the 
company name is VIA in uppercase, and the use of uppercase VIA makes it 
apparent that the term isn't being used to mean the english word "via" 
which may be confusing in some cases.

But the exception is just for the word VIA, all other names should 
retain the xorg convention.
