For the case-matter issue, I think it's a bug. But as for the - to _, I
would like to listen Jay's opinion since who is the original author. And
obviously, it's intentional change.

Hi Wang Hong adnd Fei Long,

It's been a long time since I wrote that :) To be honest, I'm not sure
why -- other than just standardizing/normalizing the input, we did that.
Perhaps it had something to do with vendor-specific properties that had
a prefix that used hyphens, but I'm really not sure... perhaps I am
getting too old :)
