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.
