But that's the thing: in the cases you've given, the arrangement of letters is different, which would lead to different words. The difference between "perl", "Perl", and "PERL" is capitalization; their respective arrangements of letters is the same. I find it somewhat ironic that a trained linguist would have built in that much overloading into one word.
