A pet peeve of mine is seeing newspapers hyphenate "eB-ay" and "iP-hone", when it seems a simple fix would just be to add a rule to hyphenate before an interword capital letter and get "e-Bay" and "i-Phone".

I'm not sure whether the hyphenation feature in Gecko has this exact problem, but here is a similar example:

In the last paragraph, Aurora 28 shows "Ac-tiveRecord", but it would be better displayed as "Active-Record"; a rule that hyphenates before an interword capital letter would make that happen.

(I'm not sure what the consequences might be for non-English, so this perhaps would need to be a locale-specific feature or setting.)
