My apologies to you (and the list) for my late reply.  This worked perfectly -- just by appending each line with so0.

Thank you so much!

There is no substitution going on in the toggle lines, I think your
expecting "Q" to transfer/memorize to the next set of rules? And I
don't believe that is how it works.

so0 would fit the bill as you said, but to have it toggle case you'd
add it to the end of the toggle lines...
-c T1 Q M T0 Q so0
-c T2 Q M T[z0] T[z1] Q so0
-c T3 Q M T[z0] T[z1] T[z2] Q so0
-c T4 Q M T[z0] T[z1] T[z2] T[z3] Q so0
-c T5 Q M T[z0] T[z1] T[z2] T[z3] T[z4] Q so0
-c T6 Q M T[z0] T[z1] T[z2] T[z3] T[z4] T[z5] Q so0
But I am not well versed so I'm sure there are better ways, maybe even
a way to have other rules work on a word from a previous rule..? Each
of the rules above, expands into MANYmore, these are the "short hand"
versions of the rules if you will.
