[Python-Dev] os.path.normcase rationale?

I'm curious as to why, with a file called "Foo.txt" on a case
descriminating but case insensitive filesystem,
os.path.normcase('FoO.txt') will return "foo.txt" rather than "Foo.txt"?
Yes, I know the behaviour is documented, but I'm wondering if anyone can
remember the rationale for that behaviour?
