*That*, we don't know.

I'm pretty sure title case is an English-only thing. I did some cursory digging and found this on the holy Wikipedia:
In other languages, such as the Romance languages, only the first word and proper names are capitalized.[1]

Seems like title case comes in two flavours: English and other.

And even if it's an English only thing, it's better to identify the thing the strings have in common. They are not just arbitrary short strings.

Within this scope, they're just all minor words. Apart from that, I'd say they are just arbitrary strings... Emacs doesn't care what language strings it's upcasing or downcasing.
