Note that this is actually the case in the XML specification, processors are not required to perform normalisation for matching tag names (see ‘match' in this section [1] and this comment [2] of the annotated XML specification), I suspect this is rarely a problem in practice since XML vocabularies tend to stick to ASCII identifiers (and so should programmers in general IMHO).
