PAGESPEED is a registered trademark in the US:

https://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=73818548&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch

Trademarks are about ensuring that new users aren't confused when
looking for a specific product - that is, when they search and review
websites, knowing only the name and what they want the product to do,
would the user likely be confused as to which PageSpeed is which?

In any case, we can worry (but not much) about details like that when
the time comes.  Thanks for noting the issue!
