I said neither thing. I meant to say that it is not necessary (nor
possible) to define case-insensitive, relative-URI-aware equivalence for
for every possible URI scheme. The vast majority of namespace URIs are
HTTP you can get good bang for buck in defining equivalence rules for
HTTP URIs and leaving the rest as a pure string comparison -- as per the
status quo.
