It feels like dancing around the problem. Some file URIs are not local 
(network file systems, user-space file systems), or are slow to access. Also a 
number of other URI schemes are not networked and do not need to be cached.

That said, yes, obviously the comparison should be case-insensitive insofar as 
it should be at all.
