This reply may be of value for the list:
According to the site, the most current protocol spec is:
This specification (as did older specs) tells me:

rfc2234bis], mechanism and modifier names are case-insensitive.
" Input accepted, querying now...

" evaluating v=spf1 a Mx pTr *all ...
Results - SPF Permanent Error: Unknown mechanism found: Mx
" evaluating v=spf1 a mx pTr *all ...

" evaluating v=spf1 a mx ptr *all ...
Results - SPF Permanent Error: Unknown mechanism found: *all
should read "unknown qualifier found: *". This seems to be an
omission in the current specification by the way.
