Certain parts of the URI have to be lowercased, or preserve case
sensitivity, but in my searching so far, I haven't found anything explicitly
about the param key names.  This quote from the RFC seems to imply it is

Some schemes define additional subcomponents that consist of
case-insensitive data, giving an implicit license to normalizers to convert
this data to a common case (e.g., all lowercase).

Not directly related to params, catalyst is case insensitive by default:


I believe that webgui.org is case-insensitive

Ruby on Rails has decided to be case sensitive, but the maintainer has not
told anyone why he decided that:


URI should be case sensitive by default. It *might* be nice to give option
to make them insenitive though.


Without spending a lot more time researching, it would seem like the correct
approach is:

1) case sensitive by default
2) case insensitive by config

My two cents.
