Description

See screenshot and Subject.

Having a raster layer loaded, and opening the Layer Properties / Source-tab, I can edit a 'Layer name', next to it there is a not-editable input with 'displayed as' next to it.

If I type 'foo dot bar' in the input, the 'display name' shows: 'Foo Dot Bar', but upon OK'ing of the dialog my layername shown in the legend is just 'foo dot bar', which is what I actually want :-) If I wanted a CamelCase name I would have given that....

I'm asking myself what the purpose is of that 'display name', as (at least for what I see) that name is not shown anywhere??
