Yes, I realised this, in fact it's nice to recognise bits from the book as
ChucK ugens. However, for normal ChucK use there isn't that much difference
between the two and where to cap and where not to seems fairly arbitrary
from that perspective.

Maybe it's just me being dyslexic again but every time the compiler
complains I go "now what's wrong?" and have to remember this. To me it would
seem sensible that if you go "TwoPole" then you also go "SawOsc". If I'm the
only one who thinks this is odd/ confusing then I'll happily try to remember
what bit comes from where but personally I'm in favour of languages being
consistend and having as few exceptions as possible; natural languages are
confusing enough as it is already.

Just my perspective; nothing more.
