I suggest that this sort of thing be reworded to resemble the documentation of compare-strings, e.g., "If the optional third argument is non-nil, characters are converted to lower-case before comparing them."

Perhaps some day Emacs will support better case conversion, e.g., we could extend the third argument so that if it's a case table, that case table is used rather than the default one.
