If that's what we think, we should clearly say that.

That would mean clarifying that the section is *only* about 
meta/@http-equiv, and clearly state that *because* it's not about the 
HTTP header field the parsing rules can vary.

That being said: even if we do that it would be good to reduce 
*unnecessary* deviations. For instance, it's totally not clear why 
"foocharset" is parsed as "charset", while "charsetfoo" is not 
(<http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=9628#c3>).

Best regards, Julian
