I think that the only thing that have to be done is to provide a parameter so that the names of the columns and tables will not be quoted, for example:
with the quote parameter set to false must be:

Why wouldn't you use the correct casing for the table and column names?

Actually: there is no reason, it is just we used to write all of identifiers names in a lower case.
is there any issue in providing a parameter that will disable quoting identifiers?
and another question I don't know if this is the right place to ask: what is the status of the oracle adapter class? we are considering to start a BIG new project backed with oracle DB, and I think that we will use ZF2 , but it still has no support for oracle, right? when will it be ready?

Would be great if the pdo_oci driver was as well maintained as other drivers. Until then I think we are left only with the oci8 driver which leaves us Oracle users out in the cold with respect to ORM layers and most of the frameworks out there.
