Lowercase Layers

Kind of random I know, but is there a reason that every layer name he's creating in video is all lowercase?

Personal preference i would say mostly but in newer versions of Illustrator, you have the ability to export to PNG straight from a layer and as such, the PNG will take the name of the layer it's exporting. I would say that to save time, naming the layers in lowercase should then allow for lowercase filenames when exported using this functionality?

Or i could be barking completely up the wrong tree :)
