            Bug ID: 27581
           Summary: Wording: Algorithm names must be unique when compared
                    case-insensitively
           Product: Web Cryptography
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Cryptography API Document
          Assignee: sleevi@google.com
          Reporter: ericroman@google.com
                CC: public-webcrypto@w3.org

Section "18.2.1. Naming" says that:

"Every cryptographic algorithm defined for use with the Web Cryptography API
MUST have a unique name, referred to as its recognized algorithm name, such
that no other specification defines the same case-sensitive string for use with
the Web Cryptography API."


The use of "case-sensitive" seems misleading here. Because algorithm names are
compared in a case-insensitive manner, all recognized names must be unique when
compared case-insensitively.
