It sounds like I need to clarify the documentation a bit.

ZConfig schema allow you to change the case-sensitivity by changing
the keytype of the schema or of a sectiontype.  If you don't use this
feature, the "basic-key" type is used, which converts to lower case. 
The effect is case-insensitivity for the keys.

The attributes on the configuration objects, both for the top-level
schema and individual sections, are computed by taking the key (after
conversion by the keytype) and replacing hyphens with underscores.  So
a key of "My-Key" is the same as "my-key", and the attribute name will
be "my_key".
