The stellar silence we hear in response to your query leads me to 
believe nobody has a firm answer.  Hence I would suggest that we follow 
the old rule of being liberal in what you accept and conservative in 
what you send.  That is, accept mixed case, and let us assume that 
nobody will be stupid enough to register a new component that is the 
same except for case; and then one should only output upper case, 
because we all know it works.
