Can't load docker image from getfedora.org as it contains uppercase letters

Importing the Docker image fedora:23 from getfedora.org does not work (with Docker 1.10.3) as described on the website, because the repository name contains uppercase letters. Running:

docker load -i Fedora-Docker-Base-23-20151030.x86_64.tar.xz

failes with the message:

Error response from daemon: invalid reference format: repository name must be lowercase

The problem is the name given in repositories file. The content is:

{"Fedora-Docker-Base-23-20151030.x86_64.tar.xz": {"latest": "79c2670131596c788b34f1fd86394623312f1cb552cbafbda340a1911793a189"}}

It would be better to change this to:

{"fedora": {"23": "79c2670131596c788b34f1fd86394623312f1cb552cbafbda340a1911793a189"}}

Who is responsible to change this? :D
