Would it be considered bad form to completely change the title of a question if the original title is essentially worthless? Specifically I'm thinking about curious chess situation. A much better question title (in my opinion) is the question content.

I just wasn't sure if a complete title change would be considered out-of-bounds and didn't want to do it without asking the community.

It is very good form to completely change the title if it improves the question!
