Programming language identifier normalization/casing

From: Achim Ruopp (

Unicode 3.1 Technical report #15, Annex 7
ifiers) contains the following remark:
"Generally if the programming language has case-sensitive identifiers
then Normalization Form C may be used, while if the programming language
has case-insensitive identifiers then Normalization Form KC may be more

If I'm not mistaken normalization and casing are two independent things.
So what would be the reason to make this connection?

Thanks in advance
