case-sensitivity of etag weakness indicator

Looking at <http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p4-conditional-06.html#rfc.section.2>:

  entity-tag = [ weak ] opaque-tag
  weak       = "W/"
  opaque-tag = quoted-string

According to the ABNF, "w/" would be allowed as well. However, the prose doesn't mention this.

It seems this was just an oversight, and the spec should state the weakness indicator *is* case-sensitive, by saying:

  entity-tag = [ weak ] opaque-tag
  weak       = %x57.2F ; "W/", case-sensitive
  opaque-tag = quoted-string
