There are well known abbrevations who are valid at sentence's start, but some are invalid. In example: The abbrevation "ca." is valid at sentence start ("Ein Test. Ca. alle 1000 Liter Bier wurden vernichtet.")

But following abbrevations are wrong at sentence start: "etc.", "usw.". There comes no example sentence in my mind which allows this constellation:
"Ein Test. Usw. darf nicht so einfach am Satzanfang stehen (außer ich packe es in Anführungszeichen, weil ich mich auf das Wort an sich beziehen möchte)."
