CURIE spec: URIorSafeCURIE capitalization error-prone

Regarding the CURIE specification currently at http://www.w3.org/TR/curie/
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/CR-curie-20090116):

In the datatype names URIorSafeCURIE and URIorSafeCURIEs, the
inconsistent capitalization of initial letters of words (specifically,
the lack of capitalization of the "o" in "or") seems very like to
lead to errors.

Yes, leaving "or" in all lower case does follow standard English
capitalization, but since these are computer-related identifiers, not
English titles, the word "or" should also have its first letter
capitalized, per normal camel-case conventions.
