 > Couldn't have said it better myself. The user's intent, whether they
 know it or not, is to write WordPress, not Wordpress. For the rare
 instance where that is *not* the intent, then it is an edge case (complete
 with workaround) just like other cosmetic changes in texturize.

 You absolutely cannot assume user intent with respect to editorial
 changes. Further, it is rather the epitome of hubris to dictate to the
 user what his intent is, "whether they know it or not".

 I think it is a lack of understanding of this point that contributes to
 the disconnect between the outspoken opposition to this function from many
 in the community, and the adamant support of it by some of the core
 development team.
