#359 clarify connection header field values are case-insensitive

This ought to be non-controversial; I'd propose to simply state

"Connection options are compared case-insensitively."

below the ABNF (and also rename the ABNF production "connection-token" 
to "connection-option" to remove any confusion).

Proposed patch:
