Since authoring tools are going to allow users to define classes using
their native languages, perhaps the authoring tools could also
canonicalize the names so there is no mismatch? 

That is, HTML should be defined as 'conformant applications use exact
match on sequence of characters in the document character set' and if
some authoring tool wants to be forgiving and allow 'Class' = 'CLASS',
it's the tool's responsibility to canonicalize.
