To be fair, we don't need to go that far.  The goal of this WG was to
"Internationalize LDH".  Since LDH is case-preserving and
case-sensitive, one could (I do not, but one could) argue that some
kind of case-preserving case sensitivity is desirable for an
internationalized version too.  Words or the necessity for resource
identifiers then doesn't enter in.
