D - standard identifier capitalization

Is there a standard capitalization for D identifiers, one used by core
identifiers and keywords and such as well as by Phobos?

I ask because every other identifier in D starts with lowercase, but linkage
identifiers do not:

dxerr8.d(20): valid linkage identifiers are D, C, C++, Pascal, Windows

Should these even be case sensitive?

Keywords are all lower case. Identifier case is in the D style guide, which is just some recommendations.

They're case sensitive for consistency with the rest of D.
