I don't think that would be a problem, or necessary.
Is there anything about case-insensitivity that could not be handled
as a convention.
If not, then implement it as a set of tools and options.
0% risk of compatibility issues, all the old tools and editors
will still work (but may need some time to code up support for
the new mode).
