Section 2, pg. 4 says:

   Rules for Lexical Equivalence:

         The entire URN is case-sensitive.

It should say:

   Rules for Lexical Equivalence:

         The namespace-specific part of the URN is case-sensitive.

Notes:

The original rule contradicts Section 5 of RFC 2141 [1],
which requests case-insensitive comparison after downcasing
of "urn:" and the NID, and normalization of %-escaping.
The correction restores conformance with RFC 2141.

[[ please remove after verification:
apparently this correction has been lost since LC ]]
