When I was initially loading Calibre with my existing collection of 'technical' publications I would have appreciated an option to take 'title & author(s)' from the file-name and the cover & other metadata from whatever was embedded in the document. I ended up adding books to a "New Books" library, taking all the metadata from the document, and then correcting the 'title & author(s)' before moving the books to the "Main" library. I still do this with all books - even real ebooks from Amazon, B&N etc.
Yay I'm not the only one that misses this functionality!
It is frustrating that I have the information in the file names but no way of importing them unless I forgo the rest of the metadata from the file.

What you're asking for is more often called "Capital Case". What Calibre's Capitalize option does is more often referred to as "Sentence Case".
Capital Case would be a good additional option then. I name all my files and titles using capitals for the first letter of each word.

The problem is everyone wants something different!
