The idea is to avoid broken commits that fail to build on case-sensitive file systems. For example:

There would need to be a whitelist mechanism for some headers, I think. 
I'm pretty sure the WinSDK headers have changed casing over time, so I 
would want to suppress this warning for windows.h. I would not want to 
have to change code just because I installed a new SDK.
