Going back to this, what exactly are you referring to in the RFC?
All I can find on the subject of case is an explicit statement that
values are case insensitive (as one would expect):

    1.2.2. Syntactic notation
    Characters will be specified either by a decimal value (e.g., the value
    %d65 for uppercase A and %d97 for lowercase A) or by a case-insensitive
    literal value enclosed in quotation marks (e.g., "A" for either
    uppercase or lowercase

So the fact they happen to write "In-Reply-To" implies nothing about case.
