I ran into a similar problem recently: In Štorm’s Dyna Grotesk, single caps are fine. However, when they gather in acronyms, the caps tend to stand out. Same is true for figures.
In other genres, this issue can be solved with small caps and oldstyle figures. Such features are rarely available — nor suitable — in classic grotesques. The good thing is that Dyna Grotesk comes in such a wide range of weights and widths. I reverted to a slightly more condensed gradation for all-cap strings and figures. Thanks to GREP, this can be accomplished document-wide in a minute.
