I actually do have one issue with a recent change in -10 which I consider to be serious, because it broke my Sieve implementation (as well as CMU's)

Why did this break your implementation? It did not cause any previously valid scripts to become invalid. All it did was clarify an existing rule.

If somebody puts "100k" in a Sieve script, Sieve lexer is going to reject such script.

I actually have a problem with *numbers* being case-insensitive. Cyrus Sieve doesn't accept "k", "m" and "g" prefixes in numbers.

So I would like to poll the WG regarding this issue. Do people want to make to make number case-insensitive, or should this change be undone?

Making numbers case-sensitive could invalidate extant valid scripts. That needs strong justification IMO.

Let's assess the damage first. If it turns out that the majority of implementations implement case-insensitive suffixes, then I will have to fix my implementation ;-).
