Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Compendium specifically 
say that MiNT should convert case, truncate, and perform whatever
other conversions might be necessary between filesystems?

To me, this means any and all conversion should be handled by the 
kernel.  However, I am sure you are more familiar with the innards
and can recommend us an efficient way of keeping track of these,
for each filesystem type.
