No, they should not.

There is no way to tell beforehand if a particular repository is going
to be accessed by clients on a machine with a case-insensitive
filesystem. We've had the problem in Subversion's own repository and it
runs on a unix machine, for example. On the other hand, I could serve a
repository off of a windows machine that is accessed by unix clients
that have no problem with files that differ only in case. Only the
administrator of the repository in question can determine if it is
acceptable for their repository to include files that differ only in
case, thus the decision has been left up to them in the form of the hook
