Misnamed, hah! The current definition assumes case-sensitive as it doesn't  
say anything about it. I guess that could be clearer somehow once  
Selectors has a better algorithm for it.

Regarding naming, I suggested "DOM Selectors" but people thought it should  
be "DOM Level 3 Selectors" which I also sort of agreed with up to the  
point where it would have to look similar and use the same conventions. At  
that point it became "Selectors API" again.
