Since there's no way to know, and I don't think there's any particular
reason to think a quoted title is more common than a quoted string, the
only option is to lowercase. Lowercasing is the default behavior when
sentence-casing, so it's by definition not the wrong behavior, even if
the result needs to be corrected. Going out of our way to leave
something capitalized when we don't have any way of knowing if that's
correct is just introducing unpredictability for the user. I would be
much more annoyed to have to manually fix something that the computer
guessed at and got wrong than to manually fix something that the
computer didn't have any realistic way of assessing (unless it was an
LLM, which is the actual way to do this with a high degree of accuracy).
