So when the left hand would ordinarily strike the "a" key, it hits cap lock instead, and the caps stay locked until the next time the "a" is punched?

Nice!

Also, in this position, some mistakes permanently affect the outcome, since if I hit "a" (capslock) accidentally, backspace only deletes the character, but not the caps.
