Currently in XEP-0045, roomnicks are case-sensitive. To be precise
roomnicks are handled according to the Resourceprep profile of stringprep:

This means that the following roomnicks are all different:

StPeter
stpeter
STPETER

Some people have pointed out that this can be confusing to end users.

We could solve it by applying the Nodeprep profile of stringprep, but
that would forbid things like whitespace and the ' and : characters.
(Naturally, those characters could be escaped using XEP-0106 if desired.)

Thoughts?
