Hmm, in HTTP 1.1, section 13.2.3 
<http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec13.html#sec13.2.3> there 
are several time values.

I'm not sure, but I think this depends on the header. Some may be 
case-sensitive while others are not.

Although both header names _are_ equivalent in HTTP terms, there may be 
a usecase :-)
