Languages and adjectives indicating nationality are not capitalised in Greek, demonyms are. There is practically no distinction between the last two in English but they are different in Greek:
Μαθαίνω ελληνικά. (language).
Υπάρχουν πολλά ελληνικά τυριά. (adjective)
Έχω μία Ελληνίδα φίλη. (demonym)
Rules do not usually allow for 'options', if something's unnecessary, the rule would be to drop it. :) So, yes, capitalisation is wrong. But I'd say that in the grand scheme of things it's fine if you capitalise something that doesn't need it, but a 'problem' if you do the opposite. :)
