For a CSS feature it needs to have some generic usability. The problem
is that "uppercasing the first letter of every word without exception"
does not have a strong use case - there are simply too few cases where
you can use it - for example, you can not use in styling English titles
or headings (nor in many other languages, there for other reasons, to
wit: they don't use "title case" conventions at all).
If you apply it to the first word only, you get sentence casing, which
does have a reasonably widespread use case, and 99.x% of all sentences
don't start with a word that needs exceptional "title" casing.
That, to me would seem to be the best use case you can squeeze of this.
