"lowercase" is often used in the spec in a way that means "ascii lowercase".
Although it is well defined, people are unlikely to look at the definition
since "lowercase" is such a common term. It would be much less error-prone if
the spec said "ascii lowercase" when that is what it means. The same applies to
the use of the term "uppercase".
