[icecast] icecast2 log - why lower case?

I have set up icecast2 with darkice 0.7 today (if anyone is interested,
http://yp.tilos.hu:9000/tilos96.ogg). I found a funny thing when looking
at the icecast2 log file. Entries look like: - - [19/Oct/2001:20:49:28 +0200] "get /tilos96.ogg
http/1.0" 200 1536633 "-" "WinampMPEG/2.7" 228

the strange thing is that get and http are lower case, whereas these
keywords are upper case and case sensitive according to the HTTP spec. I
had to modify the configuration of my log analyser (analog) to eat these

What is the reason of deviating from the HTTP spec? Especially as there
are no advantages...
