Such a design is useless. ß is not a form of ss, but something like  
sz. The uppercase ligature should therefore be able to show these  
roots – unless there is a tradition of an uppercase sz that has  
different roots. SS or the Ss title case are no such roots. They are  
brain damaged substitutes from an ancient 7-bit computer era.
