I think it is documented somewhere in the NFSS2 but I have not dealt
with it for a long time. AFAIK the file names of the *fd files were
changed to lowercase long time ago in order to make them work on case
insensitive file systems. And of couse, there is no uenc.def because U
means undefined and thus no \DeclareTextCommand and \DeclareTextAccent
commands make sense here.
