Comment(by TomH):

 We know that being case sensitive is not ideal, but it happened
 accidentally and by the time we realised there were duplicates in the
 database and it became very hard to do anything about it.

 Basically only the third of your suggestions is realistically possible
 without somebody doing a lot of work to remove the duplicates.
