SSL cert error

Why should a difference in case of a host/domain-name be a fatal error:

* SSL: certificate subject name '*' does not match target host
  name ''
* Closing connection #0

(curl -v

Would it hurt if in cert_hostcheck(), we make some uppercase copies
before returning 0?

Should IMHO be allowed even with ssl.verifyhost > 1. At least this command
doesn't complain:
echo GET /cgi-bin/ssl_2 | openssl s_client -connect
