I missed that your two questions were of opposite polarity.

>>> Shouldn't unique be case-sensitive?

Yes, because of the material your cited earlier.

>>> Given the following XML segment:
>>> <foos>
>>>    <foo id="1490" name="myName"/>
>>>    <foo id="9091" name="myNAME"/>
>>> </foos>
>>> shouldn't a uniqueness constraint ... throw an error?

No, because unique is case-sensitive, and so 'myName' and 'myNAME' are
