Assume the internal representation is interned "foobar" and assume you call
getAttribute("FooBar"). Now you have to lowercase the argument in order to do
pointer compares with interned strings.

That is, I'm arguing that the spec doesn't match Gecko/WebKit reality when it
says the comparison operation should be case-insensitive.
