Imagine the committee meeting where they argued about how the words should be capitalized. At least there aren't any grocers' apostrophes.

grocers' apostrophes
Hmm. Would the errant "Tomato's $1.29/lb" apostrophe be a grocers' apostrophe or a grocer's apostrophe? Is it plumbers' crack or plumber's crack? I am inclined to singular ownership, but perhaps that is merely a reflection of my capitalist ideology.

And why did they decide to capitalize "Your" only once?
