C-x I == C-x i inelegance

I would like to talk today about a little unfairness, a little
assumption; consider:

C-h k C-x I
well, the help screen and even what you see upon C-x ESC ESC (but
before RET) talk like I hit C-h k C-x i

when I do
(global-set-key "\C-xI" 'insert-buffer)
and then do C-x ESC ESC M-p ... RET
the lie's evil effects show, as I get the explanation for a key I
never typed, C-x i, and not what I really typed, C-x I

I bet emacs is worried about all those CAPS LOCK folks, so assumes
that C-x CAP == C-x non_cap [i.e., C-x I == C-x i] unless otherwise bound.

Well, seems non-elegant to me.  Mom says 2010 is the decade of
elegance, so better get with the program, and stop all that bonus
extra key binding unless
is t.
