A situation currently important to me: Writing Lisp (well, Scheme) that
gets compiled to C and must co-exist with already case-sensitive external
names in the C environment. Not that I can't use "meaningful"-enough names
in my Lisp code (that can be done easily enoug, and the names trivially mapped
to acceptible-to-C names), but that it needs to reference already-defined
case-sensitive names (externals, macros, struct elements, enums, etc.).
Fortunately, the Scheme that I'm using for bootstrapping has a case-sensitive
READ mode that can be turned on...
