Actually, as an author I'd expect prefixes in selectors really be 
case-sensitive for XBL, because the namespace declarations are 
case-sensitive. Just like type selectors are case-ensitive for XML but not 
for HTML, the prefixes in selectors should be case-sensitive in XBL but not 
in CSS (IMHO). But perhaps the Selectors specification should address this.
