Should "equal" be clarified?  In particular, from 2.4.9, I got the  
idea that comparing names would be "compatibility caseless" at least  
in that instance.  Is that also true here?  I don't see the term  
"valid hash-name reference" in this section so I don't think I missed  
something but I easily could have.

Also, off topic a little: should these questions be posted here or is  
it more productive to use the form on the page?
