It turns out there's no single case folding rule that works as people
expects in all cases. Whatever you do, there are some people who end up
screwed by it :) For example, French treatment of accents being
(reportedly) different in France and Canada, and the famous dotless i
(ı) in Turkey whose upper-case variant is I, which looks like I and
lower-cases back to i, incorrectly...

So in XML we went with case sensitivity everywhere.
