That's good to know! I would interpret it differently, though.

The idea, as far as I see it, is that you don't use title changes to increase the attention, e.g., avoiding to use upper case. But you should certainly use the title to increase the information density, e.g. 'translate "10 Ways To Do X" to "How To Do X,"'.
