I wasn't stating my requirements, I wasn't the OP, I was just pointing out the pitfalls of trying to do what the OP wanted :)
As others have said you can't then cope with a number of other cases. You cannot fight the second law of thermodynamics :)

you don't say what you want, assuming that that is
"UK Bank" "Bank Of USA"
for $i in ("UKBank" , "BankOfUSA")
replace($i,'(([a-z])([A-Z]))|(([A-Z][a-z]))','$2 $3$5$6')

$ saxon8q /tmp/replace.xq <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>UK Bank Bank Of USA

or replacing [a-z] and [A-Z] by appropriate unicode classes if you want a more global view of the world.
