JIRA ticket http://tickets.musicbrainz.org/browse/STYLE-230

To replace http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Style/Recording#Title:

Title

Where possible, the official title of the recording should be used. This may be sourced from the artist's website, a musical score, or something similar. If several official titles exist in different languages, use whichever title has the same language as the words sung or spoken in the recording. If the song is instrumental, use whichever official title in the native language of the artist.

If there is no official title or no clear choice out of multiple titles, use the most common version of the track title.

See the title guidelines for general information about titles.
