Yes and it explains clearly that “effectively caseless Georgian” is incorrect. Georgian has case. Georgian uses case differently from other scripts. This is an orthographic distinction, not a structural one. In fact as it is also stated in the proposal, there are 19th-century texts which do titlecase. It’s just that that orthography is no longer in use and that behaviour no longer desirable.
