I am not sure if it is a good idea from backward compatibility point of
view. On the other hand, we managed to change the property drawer
default position. So, I do not see why it is impossible if most users
prefer lower case.

Adding full begin/end may not be good idea for completion-at-point:
1. It becomes awkward i.e. to insert the source block language and
   arguments (#+begin_src my-super-cool-programming-language :var x=1)
2. completion-at-point usually does not behave in such way.

Note that Org mode provides org-tempo doing exactly what you describe.

Best,
