Some of you whirlers give the Glasgow Program agency too much credit. Their
focus is on running their P/program, and probably don't regulate the
capital P or small p. Apart from the official name of the program,
capitalization decisions should be the responsibility of the style guide.
I'm willing to bet this group doesn't have one, or doesn't follow one.

I've worried about all kinds of stuff earlier in my career: The wording of
copyright statements, consistent Canadian vs US spelling within the same
document, etc., meanwhile there are kids starving in the third world and
addicts in my backyard who can't get proper treatment.

It's all a matter of perspective.
