I still don't see anything wrong here. The Duden as reference for the 
German language has an example that is similar and fits very good:
scroll down to:

2. Großschreibung
a. Großgeschrieben wird das substantivierte Adjektiv, wenn es im Sinne 
von »deutsche Sprache« verwendet wird:

- eine Zusammenfassung in Deutsch

However, I don't want to provoke confrontation or nitpicking. If someone 
still think it should be changed then please do so.

My 2 ct.
