True - but you could build a list of those that the converter skips.

Not necessarily true, for example poetry / lyric titles frequently use title
case. For menu settings I'd argue they're titles, and not sentences, eg:

    MP visits India on trade visit (sentence headline).


    MP at Home (title headline).

Title case in British English is more formal, more grand - it's a matter of
taste, nor correctness.
