But allowing the add would be worse for the developers on
case-insensitive clients.  For them, the next update would yield
endless messages to "move File, it is in the way".

You are presuming a particular process model which is not universally true. Therefore, allowing the add is not, a priori, bad.

Is anyone here old enough to remember the phrase "The whole world is not a VAX"?
