Sounds good.

While I like the proposed distinction above, I'd just as soon have
Org-mode default to all caps in the manual and in practice.  As noted
before individual users can use lower case at the mercy of their (our)
potentially changing whims.

I'm going to push up a patch which will change to inserting #+RESULTS:
by default as well as a user-configurable variable which can be used to
customize this behavior.
