I strongly suspect that it ends up in something equivalent to `RtlCompareUnicodeString` with the `CaseInsensitive` parameter set to `TRUE`. (Or at least, some functionally-equivalent copypasta.) That function is old enough that it almost certainly doesn't do anything right or proper or culture-sensitive when doing the comparison.

Thanks, John, I think that's it! I tested my pathological inputs, and they
all match get/set. I've updated the article with this information. This is
exactly the sort of thing I was trying to find in my research.
