That's because all characters in an ISO 9660 volume identification need to be 

If you use more complicated labels you additionally need to support an 
extension like Joliet (which provides its own seperate directory tree in 
addition to the one of ISO 9660!).  It's easier to use uppercase letters only 
and not have a second tree.

See <>.

That page also describes how the disklabel looks:
- The first 32 KiB contain some non-ISO9660 stuff - it might be misdetected as 
something non-ISO9660 if you take it seriously.  So skip that.
- A sector has 2 KiB.
- The volume descriptors start at sector 16.
- There can be multiple volume descriptors.
- Each volume descriptor is one sector long.
- A volume descriptor can be either a boot record, a primary volume descriptor, 
a supplementary volume descriptor (for Joliet), a volume partition descriptor, 
or a volume descriptor set terminator.
- The list of volume descriptors have to be terminated by a volume descriptor 
set terminator.

- The primary volume descriptor contains the volume identifier at offset 40, 
length 32 Byte.
