Not quite. If a dragon is critical, dragon_status also returns an
attack point and a defense point (if such are known, which they always
are today). A more serious merge is needed.

I disagree. It's better to continue with lower case since we already
use that in the dragon_status command. Generally I prefer to avoid
all-caps words, except where such are established practice, such as in
C macros.
