2.3 Case-sensitivity and string comparison
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/infrastructure.html#case-sensitivity-and-string-comparison

--
Comparing two strings in a compatibility caseless manner means using the Unicode compatibility caseless match operation to compare the two strings.
--

a. The specific reference to compatibility caseless matching should be provided (D146 in chapter 3).
b. I am unsure that compatibility caseless matching is desirable. It is only used twice in the whole document that I can find:

2.5.9 (hashname reference value matching)
4.10.7.1.17 (radio button name attribute matching)

In both cases, name attributes defined in the document are being matched. I think that compatibility decomposition in the matching operation would be a surprise to users, who might expect, for example, these to be separate values: â‘ â‘´â’ˆ. More to the point, the Korean Hangul script has a complex relationship with compatibility decomposition.

I would suggest replacing compatibility caseless matching with canonical caseless matching.

c. It seems to me that this is a stab at making 'name' attributes into 'identifiers', in which case compatibility decomposition is to be desired, with identifier caseless matching (which does use compatibility normalization but is slightly simpler). But then I note that this flies in the face of CSS3 Selectors matching that we previously discussed.
