If event.dataTransfer converts everything to lowercase, that means there are
native formats that will always be impossible to access. Since "text" and
"url" are already special, maybe case should only be ignored for those two.
All other formats, even if they are actually MIME type strings, should be
handled in a case-sensitive manner.
