Because it has a much broader effect. And because the issue here is
inconsistency between completion and actual matching in
xref-find-definitions. They should be consistent, IMO.

Then maybe an alternative is to make tags-case-fold-search nil by
default? Or make xref--read-identifier be case-insensitive if
case-fold-search is non-nil?

Emacs-wide? Or just when completing on identifiers?
