I'd be ok with saying that attribute values in attribute selectors
are matched case-sensitively.

One other data point:  Gecko changed, relatively recently, from
listing the attributes that are case-sensitive (which meant unknown
attributes were case-insensitive, which seemed bad) to listing the
ones that are case-insensitive (and thus treating unknown attributes
as case-sensitive, which seems better to me).
