Please tell me a single public accessible system which is
case-sensitive.  Ask any non-hacker about mail addresses; almost
everyone enters mail addresses in whatever case they like.  I have seen
many business cards which spell Joe.Hacker@example.org despite that the
canonical address is joe.hacker@example.org.  See also the OpenPGP DANE
RFC for this.
