How can we improve InDesign?

cross references: character styles and case

At present, a cross reference takes its case from the destination. If I have used small caps for the destination style, but am referencing it from within text, I want to capitalise the term, but the cross reference takes its case from the destination, not the typed text.

To get what I want I have to cause a problem for the cross reference (yellow triangle with exclamation mark) and manually fix the capital start letter, or use hyperlinks and text anchor – a two-step action making a destination and hypherlink that cross referencing was supposed to fix.

It would save a lot of time if either the case used for the x-ref text was used as the default, or we could specify a case for the start letter of an x-ref.
