I'm not 100% sure I understand you.  Let me recast.

You're saying that either:

1. This item is referring in a generic way to "drivers" for the
PostScript and PDF file formats and therefore should case them
appropriately; or

2. This item is referring to groff's "ps" and "pdf" output devices (also
known as arguments to the -T option) and should therefore use these
option arguments as they would appear in a command line.
