I can only guess at the untold man hours lost or bugs caused by unmatched cases in names. And it is totally unnecessary. One can make over 2 BILLION unique 6 character words using only 36 characters. That ought to be enough even for bloatware artists.
While technically the W3C specs calls for encoding spaces and other special characters used in a link, I know of no common or modern browser that would even burp on them - not even IE.
