The *name* may be English-specific, but as long as the three forms
"decadenza", "Decadenza", and "DECADENZA" are all possible in different
contexts, then the three operations are all required. The en-us rules
for titlecasing multi-word strings are *very* language-specific, and
not everyone agrees on which words are to be capitalized and which not,
but titlecasing a single word should be meaningful in any language that
has a cased script.
Perhaps it should be called "sentence-casing".
