So I'm kind of late to this party, but like Bernt, I've been favoring
lowercase #+ keywords; I believe it looks cleaner and easier on the
eyes.  However, if functions that autogenerate keywords (e.g.
#+results from code blocks and easy templates) default to a particular
case, forcing a different case as a user becomes unappealing
(consistency trumps aesthetics).

If we want to keep org truly keyword-case-agnostic, then there should
be a user-customized variable that easy templates and org-babel result
blocks would follow.
