Content-Type header case sensitive

Wordpress 2.0.6 (and below) use of the Content-Type header is inconsistent. In most places it sends "Content-Type" but in some, particularly the RSS templates, it sends "Content-type" (note the lowercase 't')
RFC2616 implies that this header is case sensitive.
I came across this whilst using the WP-Cache plugin. It is strict about the header case and ignores the RSS feed content types, overriding it with it's own default of html/text. So WP-Cached RSS feeds end up with the wrong content-type, breaking some feed readers.
