Can you envision a scenario where the current behavior works? I guess
the only thing I can think of is if someone wanted a repository to
just be read-only but incorrectly had it set to read-write and it was
only not allowing the write because of case-sensitivity.

This just seems like an obvious bug to me that anyone would have run
into and changed their rules (to get the case right) until it worked
