Personally I have the opinion that grammatically proper spelling with a
capital starting letter and everything else lower case letters would be
the optimum. The name would then also be spelled correctly in newspaper
and other media having rules to follow the official rules rigorously.

That is a good point and probably the showstopper for change the
official spelling.
