Unless someone wants to mess around with Mediawiki (in a pretty serious way, I imagine), I don't think this will happen. Mediawiki seems to have an anachronistic and unforgiving concern for case in its URLs, unfortunately. URL Rewrite or similar are also possible, though high maintenance.

Yes, "eGovernment Interest Group". Good pickup.

More generally, could we adopt the Wikipedia mantra "be bold" [1] rather than consulting with the list about every change? (albeit this one is pretty major). The wiki is a collaboration tool, too.
