I think this sounds like a sensible option.

Of course, whether it actually is depends on whether the people who 
want case-sensitivity are also people who tend to write their code 
inside a (MODULE ...) form, and I suspect (given that people are not 
willing to make do with the #cs solution we have currently) that they 
write a significant number of case-sensitive expressions that are not 
inside of a (MODULE ...) form.
