  1. I have a question regarding usage of the “Quickly Capitalize Your Title in the Address Bar” feature described above.

    Would it be OK to create an open source plugin for a text/code editor that would leverage the above feature to check and fix all title casing in a document? i.e. the plugin would scan the document (.e.g. a Markdown document) extract every section title, post it to levering the URL and “title/” addition feature, and then extract the capitalized title from the page and paste in place of the original title in the source document — in other words, is this type of automated use of this service allowed and approved of?

    I couldn’t figure it out by reading the “Terms” and “FAQ” section, so I’m asking.

    I use this capitalization service quite a lot, and it would be great to be able to automate my workflow via a plugin editor which can fix all titles in a document at once.

    Ever though of exposing the service publicly via an API?

    Thanks for you attention.
