Yes, you are right, this is my mistake. Sorry, I didn’t mean to confuse
with a typography terminology here (which is not excuse, of course). What I
mean is a kind of optional text transformation like small-caps or
uppercase, optionally(!!) used in the Latin script to render a title (just
for distinguishing from the rest of the text).

The situation with the Georgian script differs from the English or Cyrillic
essentially, mixing cases is not allowed (as far as we can state anything
for a writing system, which is usually very flexible).
