I do not recall in detail, but this or something related should have
already been discussed (I'd let others step in if they know the story in
more detail).

Basically, it should be something like the caseIgnore stuff for IA5 was
absent in the RFC 225* series, and it was not added to the RFC 451* series
because IA5 is essentially obsolete, directoryString should be used
