There's no real technical reason: the standard says upper-case, but PG's
general philosophy of case folding would suggest folding to lower-case.
If we were compliant with the spec's case folding requirements then
emitting uppercase would be the clear choice, but since we aren't, I
don't have strong feelings either way.
