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? (In the latter case there is one example in 3028bis-10 which uses lowercase 'k' now, which has to change)

Obviously, digits are case-insensitive, but by stating "number" this also includes QUANTIFIER, which only allows uppercase per the ABNF.

Nope.  RFC 3028 said:

   QUANTIFIER = "K" / "M" / "G"

Literal strings in ABNF are always case-insensitive.

Ok, you are right. But many people got beaten by this ABNF "feature".

Including CMU (before my time). Its about a 10 sec fix for me, so I'll do whatever the consensus dictates.
