In early 2014 a BIND user encountered a problem with some SIP phones, that turned out to be due to the fact that, while compressing zone updates, we were not preserving case-sensitivity. We determined that CamelCasing is allowed, and thus case should be preserved by IETF specification. We then consulted with a number of operating system publishers and agreed on a solution. This brief presentation will explain how BIND handles this situation and introduce others to the issue.
