Actually, a rather minimal change is required to eliminate the caps-sensitivity. {H} becomes {kh} and {Q} becomes {qh}. I don't think {tl} would work for {tlh} as it VtlV could be ambiguous between a root ending in Vt followed by a root begining in lV and a vowel-final root (there are a few) followed by one beginning in tlV. -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
