You've used that phrase twice now, and I still can't figure out what it
means. What requirement do you see that is not being met?
Note that a KDC _could_ enumerate all possible mixtures of upper and lower
case for a given principal name. It'd be sort of suckful compared to just
making matching case-insensitive, but it could be done.
