Enable wTM service to process all request headers in lower case

This request is to enable wTM API services to comply  to the networking standards (RFC 2616 Sec 4.2 and RFC 7230 Sec 3.2) which state that HTTP headers are case insensitive.

This issue was identified during our testing with IBM Cloud Load Balancer. 

Details of announcement:

Please note, effective 31 March 2023, a change will be made with the way the IBM Cloud Load Balancer processes HTTP requests and responses.

**What are we changing?**

IBM Cloud Load Balancer will convert all HTTP request and response headers to lower case. This applies to all traffic handled by HTTP and HTTPS listeners.This is being done to provide support for HTTP/2, but will be applied to older HTTP 1.x versions as well for uniformity.

**What action is required?**

For most applications , this will not require changes, but any application that depends on the case sensitivity of headers needs to be updated to handle them irrespective of capitalization. This is in accordance to the networking standards (RFC 2616 Sec 4.2 and RFC 7230 Sec 3.2) which state that HTTP headers are case insensitive.
