ISSUE-46: DOM3EV: createEvent case-(in)sensitive?

http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/webapi/issues/46

Raised by: Bjoern Hoehrmann
On product: DOM 3 Events

We don't say whether createEvent performs case-(in)sensitive comparison
with its argument. It should be case-sensitive but some implementations
disagree. I can't remember seeing a script that uses other spelling than
what we have in the document, and we don't disallow (or discuss in any
other way) proprietary extensions relative to createEvent(...), so it's
fairly save to specify that it's case-sensitive.

If other disagree and want case-insensitive comparison, we need to de-
fine the algorithm for that. In Unicode there are several ways to do
that, assuming that we do not prohibit proprietary extensions that use
non-ASCII characters. I guess we should use simple case folding then,
but let's rather make it case-sensitive...
