Why are Uom case sensitive?

On our project we need to import uom's from an xml file. We have created a tool to add the uom's into AF.


Now we have the issue while adding uom's with the same abbreviation but a different case.  The problems occur, for example, at the uomClass "Electric Current". Standard it contains Ampere (A), but we want to add milli Ampere (mA) and Mega Ampere (MA). This is not possible, because of AF seems to be case sensitive. Is this by design or issue?


Have anybody some idea to add both uom's?
