I definitely like this idea. While I haven't done a full review of the 
patch, I have a few questions:

Aren't the apr_table keys case insensitive anyway? Why do we need the 
case conversion of the key names?

Maybe making ap_regname() accept an optional prefix string that is 
prepended to each name would be a good idea?

Maybe the use in <LocationMatch> and friends should add some prefix to 
the names? Like "m_" or "match_" or "m:"? This would make it more 
difficult to shoot oneself in the foot by allowing a remote attacker 
to set env variables that have some special meanings elsewhere in 
httpd (or in an executed cgi script). And/or maybe these values should 
be filtered out again when exporting them to cgi env variables?
