Dane is *externalising* a function that in normally internal to SMTP.
Dane needs to address this issue.

This is like if the DNS was case sensitive.  gethostbyname would
have to downcase/uppercase the inputs to the DNS call and the data
entry would have to be similarly case converted.  Rather than doing
this it was decided that the keys would be case insensitive in DNS
lookups.
