I don't _think_ it should be legit to have this char at beginning/end of a
title, as zero-width space is meant to be used as a separator to disable
ligatures etc, and only makes sense within a span of non-whitespace characters.

In the middle of words, it may actually be required for some languages.

Correct behavior is _probably_ to strip this char from beginning/end during
title normalization, while preserving it in the middle of words. Once that's
done, a run of cleanupTitle & co should pretty transparently correct existing
titles.

I would recommend double-checking the definitions and actual usage to make sure
these assumptions are correct before changing rules, however.
