Ah! I don't mean to introduce inconsistencies.  I would be happy to
change the dynamic #+results: generation so that it instead inserts
#+RESULTS: into the buffer.  I believe the gain in consistency
out-weights any aesthetic concerns.

That said I'm happy that Org-mode is forgiving enough to allow me to
lowercase most of my keywords locally.
