ISSUE-82: Non-ASCII enumerated values

Non-ASCII enumerated values

Description:
2.5.3 Keywords and enumerated attributes
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-microsyntaxes.html#keywords-and-enumerated-attributes

I realize that the set of "enumerated values" in HTML5 consists strictly of ASCII strings. However, there is no syntactical requirement that this be true. Non-ASCII values could be included into an enumerated value set, in which case, the "ACSII case-insensitive" match may be incomplete. Instead of using "ASCII case-insensitive", could Unicode case-folded matching be defined instead? This is stable, well-defined, and a strict superset of the ASCII case?
