Osmosis has been updated to upper case the database member type names 
but not xml member type names.  I believed the reason for making them 
upper case in the database was to railsify something, not for any 
aesthetics reason.  I didn't change the xml processing simply because it 
never occurred to me that it would be necessary.

In fact I've just checked the the api xml still uses lower case values 
so I think osmosis is still correct.

I believe it's a bug in the planet dumper, it should be converting them 
to lower case when writing the xml.

If osmosis does need to make a change, feel free to change the following 
classes because I won't be around for the next 14 hours at least.
