To be clear, that's using the properties of the font not the character,
yes (so at the TeX end the characters are unchanged)? Does that work
reliably for all fonts (most obviously CM)?

I guess my worry is that this is not transparent to the 'user': they've
asked the case to change but if they examine the TeX material it's not
actually happened.
