RFC 5646, Section 2.1.1 has a perfectly good description of how to
handle tags that differ only in case, like "en" and "EN": they are
completely equivalent in all respects. I'm not sure why the CBOR tag
couldn't just use this existing rule instead of defining its own rules
on case sensitivity and case mapping, but that's up to the CBOR folks.
