 2207.01.patch removes the lowercase restriction in BuddyPress. This leaves
 username validation to WP. That means that you can have BooneBGorges in WP
 single, but not in MS. That's because of
 filters.php#L21 (line 21).

 IMO, this is as far as BP should go. As DJPaul points out, BP has no
 business validating usernames. If you're unhappy with the lowercase
 restriction in MS, you can either petition WP to remove the restriction in
 WP core (see #WP17904) or you can
 {{{remove_filter( 'sanitize_user', 'strtolower' );}}}
 in a plugin.
