When should we remove pseudo-tags from a title?

Many answers on related questions say that a tag shouldn't be duplicated in the title.s

Often I see tags in titles either "[java] question" or "java: question". Should we edit these question and remove the tag from title (adding the tag if necessary)?

Would minor edits considered to be nitpicking?

Editing is a great way to clean up and explain to new people how things work. So, please, edit!

(And I would't worry how people who boldly post with tags and hence failed to first look around to see how things work, feel about that. I think all will appreciate it after being around for some longer time.)
