Well, text written in small caps
like this one
is the best way to achieve fast recognition of letters. Text written
in big caps
draws attention. So when you write text
Using Capitalization Of The First Letters
you get two advantages: very good letter recognition, very good
sentence segmentation.

You probably rely on newspapers, magazines, and such. In Polish
(another latin-based language) Header Capitalization is very rare,
but Header Capitalization is very good method to improve readability
of one-liners, why not to use it?
