If we're going to do anything like this, surely it would be better to store
everything as sentence case (thus allowing reliable distinction of proper
nouns), then have an on-the-fly conversion to Title Case (i.e. uppercase all
initial letters). (Before anyone complains, I know this would also
capitalise short words, such as "And", "For" and "A", but that's better than
the alternative IMHO. In fact those short-word-exceptions are a large part
of what annoys me about title case in he first place!)
