In perfect world a well behaving WMS client should point GetMap requests to an URL that is announced by the well configured WMS server through the GetCapabilities document. However, in real life different GetCapabilities and GetMap URLs are often due to misconfigured server. Therefore it might be good if QGis could give users two alternatives when this situation is detected. The question might be:
"WMS server is advertising http://server.org/WMS/GetMap as GetMap URL. Would you like to use it?". If user answers No then GetCapabilities URL would be used also for GetMap.
