The answer is in the grammer. The capital or lack of, changes the whole meaning of the word from a name to a description, or rather humanoid.
Yup, that was my line of thinking, too -- in Twilight Princess, for example, Midna frequently uses the "[You] humans" label when talking to Link about himself. Which clearly suggests a humanoid descriptor...in other words, characteristics such as "tall," "bipedal," "living in organized social communities," etc., which both humans and Hylians do.
It's a generalized label which would encompass both elves, as well as humans, without too much exact specificity.
