That was a lot of the argument on xml-uri. Some folks seemed to think
that HTTP's rules for case-insensitivity (host name always insensitive)
should apply URIs across the board, but there was no consensus on that,
Perhaps I've read too much into that to say there is no equality
function for URIs, but I suspect that there is no equality function
which can function successfully across all of the URI schemes.
I believe pure string equivalence always returns correct positives, but
also a large number of false negatives.
