Do capital Cs have to have a cedilla

There is a modernist view which, increasingly, omits all diacritical marks from capital letters, the cedilla included. The Academie Française, however, argues for inambiguity and ease of reading and comes down in favor of using them.

Thank you! I thought capitals had been used without diacritics for donkeys' years (since I was at school), though I knew you could use them for clarity. Thanks for the enlightenment!
