Very true for Unix hosting. But Windows is still forgiving here.
That would just add one more obstacle to later changing your servers. Always try to be as flexible as you can. What if your hosting service decides to switch servers? People limit themselves to proprietary systems. Later, when they want to change (be it their local system or their hosting service) they can't cause they weren't paying attention to their file names and/or HREFs. This is probably even worse than using proprietary Browser tags, cause other people might use mixed case links to your site. Now, if you want to switch from IIS to Apache, you would have to convert the filenames, the HREFs and ask other people to adjust their links. And all this for no reason other than not not paying attention to something simple as a file name.
