If you want to get the behavior you're looking for, you need to switch to UFS, which supports sparse files like most other POSIX filesystems.

But does that not also remove case-insensitivity, leading to failures in Mac applications that do not bother to get the case right?

Coming from a "real" Unix background, it's quite irritating having (say) "Makefile" and "makefile" the same object... Yes, I've seen cases (!) where both are used.
