Good idea, I can never memorize those goofy rules.
It could be a cool thing to have for example
in BibLaTeX.

You don't have to know a lot of Elisp to do that.
Here is a start. Only you'll have to insert the
"stopwords" yourself.

(setq do-not-capitalize '("ah" "oh" "eh"))

(defun make-a-title (beg end)
  (interactive "r")
    (goto-char beg)
    (while (< (point) end)
      (if (member (thing-at-point 'word t) do-not-capitalize)
        (capitalize-word 1) )
      (backward-word) )))
