Does this mean "All parameters defined as a token are also allowed to occur
as quoted-string, but only when both notations are equivalent" or "All
parameters defined as a token are also allowed to occur as quoted-string;
both notations are equivalent."

quoted-strings are always compared to each other in a case-sensitive manner
(right?) but tokens are always compared to each other in a case-insensitive
manner. A quoted-string should be compared to a token in a case-insensitive
manner as well, right?
