When replacing "word" by "text" without "Match case" both word and Word will be replaced by "text". However, I would expect that "word" is replaced by "text" and "Word" by "Text" (and "WORD" by "TEXT").

Why would you *expect* that? The match is the found text--not the replaced text.
If you need more granularity--run more finds/replaces
If you're suggesting this as an enhancement--that is a bucket load of work for a very corner case. Wontfix.
I won't reopen but I don't agree with WontFix.
That's "Preserve capitalization" option from Alternative Find & Replace extension.

Thanks for the pointer. Another pointer is that Emacs and Eclipse can do this. Of course, I understand that it may be too much work for little benefit. I also understand that if it were truly important for LO users, somebody (or me) would have already implemented it.

I'd prefer to close this as a duplicate of bug 38261 (although a regex solution for this seems overkill to me, but I'll be happy with what I can get), to keep track of the interest on this and the potential pool of developers, testers, backers of this feature.
