just as side note, not meant to touch the maintainer discussion.

This is not only a "Bash problem". The programmer/user mistake to use [A-Z] for "only capital letters, capital A to capital Z" is a very common one.

But I'm not sure if every official application-level documentation should cover those kind of pitfalls. There would be many topics around "bad programming habbits" that should be documented.

Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others.
