Do you READ my posts, Alain? The full OED does NOT take case ordering into
account. It takes the age of the word by its introduction into the language
as criteria for ordering homographs. You cannot say anything about case
ordering in English by looking at the full OED, because the full OED does
not DO case ordering.
