“untitled” vs. “Untitled”

The Cocoa-Dev mailing list has an interesting discussion of how to name untitled windows. Apple’s guidelines have long recommended “untitled” for reasons explained in the thread, however cross-platform applications from Adobe and Microsoft haven’t followed this guideline, and neither does Cocoa’s NSDocument class. Apple’s Ali Ozer says that rather than fix NSDocument, the guidelines should be changed, and he provides some necessary, but I think not sufficient, evidence that this is a good idea. Kudos to Apple for thinking this through years ago, and to today’s Mac developers for caring.

They are arguing about this, with all the other UI atrocities OS X has brought?
