Troll harder. It's called an example for illustration of point purposes.
I mean let's just be honest; it won't matter if I find the quote from the reference manual..All you are going to do is demand proof for something else then or say it doesn't matter.
(b) No distinction as to type face or font in the presentation of an entity name will be recognized. Subscript or superscript characters cannot be entered into the computer records of the secretary of state; consequently, such characters will not appear above or below the other characters in the entity name. Example: H2 O will appear as H2O. The secretary of state, however, will recognize the use of either upper or lower case letters in the presentation of the entity name.
The United States Government Printing Office in their "Style Manual," March 1984 edition (the most recent edition published as of March 2000), provides comprehensive grammar, style and usage for all government publications, including court and legal writing. Chapter 3, "Capitalization," at ' 3.2, prescribes rules for proper names: "Proper names are capitalized. [Examples given are] Rome, Brussels, John Macadam, Macadam family, Italy, Anglo-Saxon."
Users of the GPO Style Manual should consider it as a general guide. Its rules cannot be regarded as rigid, for the printed word assumes many shapes and variations in type presentation. An effort has been made to provide complete coverage of those elements that enter into the translation of manuscript into type.
Essentially, the GPO Style Manual is a standardization device designed to achieve uniform word and type treatment, and it aims for economy of word use. Such rules as are laid down for the submission of copy to GPO point to the most economical manner for the preparation and typesetting of manuscript. Following such rules eliminates additional chargeable processing by GPO.

You haven't disputed anything.
That's because some stuff is just common sense and other stuff doesn't need to be made a law in order for them to use it; being If Nom de Guerre is represented as all caps name in that manual, they wouldn't need a law to put your name in all caps and state so.
