The current scheme works just fine on case-insensitive file systems.

Creating a directory named CVS on a case-insensitive file system is
equivalent to creating a directory named CVS on a case-sensitive file
system.  As long as you store metadata in the file system, there is a
potential for name clashes -- it is up to the users to avoid them.
