I don't see why we should have something different than MySQL does. With
current version it has some bad side effects:

On MySQL commandline: "create table autocommit (i int);" goes okay, in
phpMyAdmin it is converted to "CREATE TABLE AUTOCOMMIT (i int)" so it
creates uppercased table. This is IMHO something we don't want...

If we wouldn't change case of reserved words, it would be okay, but we
do change this so we should have same reserved words as MySQL does.
