I think that would be overkill.  The issue only arises when a user
is creating a new key, or adding a new user ID to an existing key --
something that isn't going to be done very often.

I think it's OK simply to assume the user will know the proper way to
write his/her own e-mail address, and preserve the case (at least of
the left-hand side) as he/she types it.
