crond logs its name in uppercase

Description of problem:
Not a problem, just a question. Why is crond logging it's name in all caps now, as in?
Oct 14 03:35:01 machine /USR/SBIN/CROND: (use) CMD (cmd)
It's not like I have a case insensitive file system, and there isn't a /USR/SBIN/CROND file in my system anyway.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. schedule a command via cron, don't log to syslog
2. look at /var/log/cron
A line like above listing /USR/BIN/CROND
A line like above listing /usr/bin/crond
Looks bad. Like cron is shouting at me.
CROND was always in uppercase to mark it's a parent and childern were lowercase. The change is that whole path is printed out. The bug is fixed by one of upstream commits, I must release new version soon.
The whole path will be fixed (#872747), but I don't see uppercase as a bug. It was always like that.
