           Summary: lowercasing requirement for
                    Access-Control-Request-Headers harmful

          Severity: normal

"If author request headers is not empty include an
Access-Control-Request-Headers header with as header field value a
comma-separated list of the header field names from author request headers in
lexicographical order, each converted to ASCII lowercase (even when one or more
are a simple header)."

The requirement to lower-case header field names is harmful; it introduces an
inconsistency with other HTTP header fields (Vary, Connection) that is not
needed, as header field names are supposed to compared case-insensitively
