Importing Files: Added Option for Importing Keywords

Would it be possible to add an option to 'Ignore Case' when importing files with existing keywords?

At the moment, if I have 'country' as a keyword tag in LR and I import a file with a keyword 'country', LR will find the tag and assign it to the imported image. But if the file has 'Country' as a keyword, LR will create a new tag 'Country'. Another image with 'COUNTRY' as a keyword will result in yet another tag being created.

This is incosistent with the behaviour when entering keywords in the Keywords pane (RHS), where LR will find and assign an existing keyword irrespective of case.
