Well, IMHO readability is not an issue. The difference between "Playback
Settings" and "Playback settings" is minimal and even to the "title
case"-used eye, it makes sense.

If we go for title case we will have to choose which strings should use it
and what type.
Even if it is not as complicated as you say I don't find a reason to not
just stick to sentence case. Title case is just a habit and yes I am one
used to it too, but I find it easier to maintain sentence case.
