Re: [css3-fonts][css-variables][css-counter-styles-3][css3-values] Case sensitivity of user-defined identifiers

If the property names are case insensitive, the way to reference them should 
be case insensitive, too. Otherwhise, you will get weird behaviors...

    a: lower-value;
    b: use(a);
    C: use(A);

I think the sanest solution here is to have identifiers be 
ASCII-insensitives. In that case, the previous case would resolve into

    a: upper-value;
    b: upper-value;
    c: upper-value

Strings and URI would then be the only case-sensitive tokens in the CSS 
value syntax (because of external requirements).
