The cases you mention are cases where we really can't change behaviour, as it
would be incompatible with legacy behaviour (which is as specced today).

Generally speaking, everything is case-sensitive. The only exceptions are for
legacy reasons or consistency. Case-sensitive behaviour is far better all
around than case-insensitive behaviour, so it's actually a benefit for other
languages that they don't have to worry about this.
