If this were implemented I think "initial" should be the ONLY value
allowed. If this value is set you should be able to change the case
with svn mv.

However, I question the need for this at all. The pre-commit hook to
disallow adds if they would result in a name conflict on case-
insensitive file systems is enough. Simply extend that hook so that
it checks for conflicts only in directories with some property set
and you give control on a per-directory basis without having to tweak
hook scripts anymore. That would solve the root of the problem of
having mixed case in the repository when it was not wanted.
