I agree that CamelCase is ugly and in bad taste. However, I make an
exception when the register level programmer's manual uses this style.

IMHO, it is better to use the exact same mnemonics as in the
manual. That way, when the next person comes along to make a change to
the code, with manual in hand, he will immediately know what is what.
