No, a statement that a character string based protocol element is case-
sensitive or case-insensitive does not imply any requirements for im-
plementations unless so specified (for example, even though the scheme
component of a URI is case-insensitive, implementations are often re-
quired to perform case-sensitive comparison of the scheme, like in XML
Namespaces), and even if, the comparison algorithm has to be specified. 

As an example, if comparison is based on full case folding as defined
in Unicode, "APPLICATION/SSML+XML" and "APPLICATION/ßML+XML", or if you
follow the IRC protocol rules, "application/x-foo^bar" and "application/
x-foo~bar" would be equivalent. You typically also have to define when
to establish whether the value is allowed, since folding first and then
checking produces different results to when you check first and fold
later.
