Good luck with convincing the ones implementing it...
Why should it be case insensitive? It's not case insensitive now and I
do not see any technical reason to change that. It's not that package
names, sections or anything else is case insensitive, is it? Like
explained before, an urgency that is not existing (for instance one with
capitals) is treated as low urgency at least in britney.
