This can and should be achieved by querying the wb_terms table via the
TermsCache interface. That would also fix bug 43962.

Agreed. The default should be case-insensitive to correspond with the new default on the item suggester. This is important, because a common way to find items without descriptions is to use the suggester, then search when you see descriptions are missing.

It could be useful to have a checkbox to change this when disambiguating though.

This would now be super easy, infact it is probably 1 line of code (an option) and then tests
