Luckily I defined the problem, so I get to set its bounds :-) My strings
have two parts: an initial two letter code and a subsequent name. Those
strings that are neither all uppercase nor all lowercase always have an
uppercase code and a capitalized (i.e. first letter upper, all others
lowercase) name.

In theory it would be nice to be able to apply special rules for names
that are made of acronyms and/or multiple words, but it's not that
