In the ideal world I would set in OI that Caption uses a
resourcestring, and the component has some method to re-read it's
content, so one could do stuff like:

for i := 0 to Form1.ComponentCount - 1 do
  C := Form1.Compnents[i];
  if C.UsesResourceStringForCaption then C.UpdateResourceString;

This would make maintanance (large menu's, active devolopment of forms
in question) lots easier.
