Inner braces need to be preserved as they are often there to protect
capitalisation, e.g. for TLAs and names like McDonald, but also for
compound names such as {van der Waals} which together form a single
component of a name.  So it's not just the title that needs to be
treated carefully but other entries (author, editor, booktitle).
