My point was that it is not necessarily the case that, for Emacs,
_just because_ a filesystem is case-insensitive, you cannot
rename a file to the same name but with a different letter case.

See the bug I pointed to, where John explained that OS X filesystems
can be either case-sensitive or case-insensitive.

FWIW, this is also true on Cygwin:
