That's not how I would read it. The prefixes in the selector do not have
a defined case while the string passed to the function does, so the im-
plementation would have to transform between the two and since the spec
does not place any constraints on this process, I would assume that any
transformation is compliant, so for x|y you can get 'x' or 'X'.
