Perhaps you mistyped? The proposal does not change the status quo of either type names nor function names. If you mean that we can't differentiate variable names and function names, then it seems worthwhile to point out that the actual letters (not just the case of said letters) matter too. Whereas the guidelines state that types and variables should have names that are nouns, the guidelines state that functions should have names that are verb phrases.
