I went back and forth a bit on that at first. After looking at all
other fields being returned by metaWeblog.getPost by WordPress
currently I found that dateCreated and permaLink were the only two
fields that used camel case. All other fields were either a single
word or used underscores. This seemed to be especially true of
fields not part of the original spec, like mt_* and wp_*. Based on
that it went with the underscore.
Sorting should still work, in metaWeblog.newPost they are the only
two field names that start with date.
