Change Extension Case from within LightRoom

This is both a problem and a long overdue idea.

Lightroom Sync does not recognize corrections to file extensions made outside of LR. I have a preference for uppercase DNG file extensions, but LR currently has a bug that doesn't generate the UPPER CASE Extension when importing.

I'm aware that they are working on fixing that Bug, but...

No problem, I'll use Better File Rename to bulk change the extension, but even after syncing the folder from within LR, it doesn't pickup the change.

The suggestion to delete and reimport the files once the Bug has been fixed isn't practical because I would loose all my DAM work, not to mention Keywording and any Editing that I've performed.

Regardless of fixing the importing problem, there are either occasions when either one neglects to make the correct Case selection before importing or old files, already in LR, need to be converted.

LR should either build in the ability to change the extension Letter Case or the sync feature should recognize a simple external change such as a change of Case.
