We've been working on addressing this question in the HTTP style guide [1].

The style change were applied in the Priorities draft as part of AUTH48.
The following PR was merged into the branch with all AUTH48 changes, we
just won't see that as a rendered output until the RFC is published

https://github.com/httpwg/http-extensions/pull/1977

I can work on an equivalent update PR to the Digest spec to align it to the
HTTP style guide.

Cheers
Lucas
