This is not a usability issue. It's *almost* personal preference :P

I saw a comment earlier from Steven saying he and Dries had "decided
to implement this".

I'd prefer not to spend this cycle dealing with it, but punt to the
beginning of the next cycle. I agree with Laura's comment that this
doesn't achieve much of anything -- if it's consistently lower case
(whether e.e. cummings-style Drupal-ism or not), let's leave it that
way. Someone make a locale-pack if they want it a different way.
