In version 18 of the draft spec it states that "All transfer-coding
values are case-insensitive." Its a little unclear whether this also
applies to theĀ attribute/value pairs that make up a
transfer-parameter. In similar key/value pairs, attribute values tend
to be case insensitive while values are not. For instance, the spec
for media types states: "The type, subtype, and parameter attribute
names are case-insensitive.  Parameter values might or might not be
case-sensitive." It would be nice for the spec to state this
explicitly as well transfer-codings.

Thanks,

Dave
