there is legitimate use of Ohm instead of Omega: In continental european
typography, uppercase greek math letters are set in italics by default,
while units of measurement *must* be typeset upright. Anglo-american
typography usually sets capital greek math upright -- with lowercase italics.

If you want an Ohm sign in european mathematical typography (and not an
math italic capital omega) it is wise to use a special code for it.

TeX follows the anglo-american way in this respect. Of course, you can
change this feature, since TeX is programmable.
