A third possibility is that kthml actually uses the OS-native widgets for form
controls and that those widgets don't allow a simple (or possibly any)
implementation of text-transform.

We are all agreed that your theory is crazy.  The
question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough
to have a chance of being correct.  My own feeling is
that it is not crazy enough.
