[Fontinst] "Capital" glyphs in TS1 encoding

The Text Companion Encoding TS1 has a few glyphs with the string 
"capital" in it:


The documentation describes them as being "intended for use with 
capital letters." I wonder what this actually means. Are they there to 
meet the needs and impression of small capital letters, i.e. smallcaps, 
or are they there to be put on the regular capital letters of the font? 
If so then they're simply superfluous because the T1 and TS1 encodings 
already have them:


So they are smallcaps, aren't they?

We don't believe this to be a coincidence. - Jeremy S. Anderson
