OK.  There are still some details to work out in the spec, so I'll
also be holding off that until we are all happy with it, and it's also
had a wider review.

I don't have an opinion either way here; it's your call.  In most
cases the file will not be accessed by the user directly.  The
Gutenprint PPDs are lower case, but use the driver name, so might be
confusing to some; the Foomatic ones are not, and might be a bit more
readable.  If in doubt, I would do whatever upstream are doing.
