Better not even think about saying anything about normalization,
right?  PKCS#11 nowadays supports UTF-8 for the strings we care about,
but says nothing about normalization.  I suppose you could say that
matching should be (lowercase) normalization-insensitive.  In practice
it will never matter (which is why the lowercase).
