Description of problem:
Hammer returns inconsistent capitalization in its json output. For example, a user trying to parse the id's in an output may have to handle 'ID', 'Id', and 'id'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.1 GA

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run one of the two commands detailed in Additional Info, or your own choice.
2. run at least one more command
3. Check consistency for returned keys

Actual results:
keys are inconsistently capitalized

Expected results:
keys are inconsistently capitalized. I prefer lowercase for ease
