Capitalisation after slash “/” in title

Currently, the first word after a slash in a title is not capitalised correctly when using title-case styles such as chicago-author-date.csl.

[The mind/brain identity theory]

is rendered as:

The Mind/brain Identity Theory

Expected, of course:

The Mind/Brain Identity Theory

The Chicago Manual, 16e, lists rules for words following hyphens in “8.159 Hyphenated compounds in headline-style titles”, but is silent on slashes.

I propose to adopt the rule “always capitalise a word immediately following a slash if this word would also be capitalised without a preceding slash”.
