Nor do I without looking them up.  I'll try to write something, if I
can understand the previous ones sufficiently.

As far as I know, Emacs consistently uses capitalized mode and package
names, which happens to agree with the instructions for messages in
this case.  That's what I've used for years -- following you, I

the documentation tips are silent on the matter, though.
