@title is a core HTML attribute.

Anyway, what "most developers" are you talking about, and what is so
special about your proposed @type attribute that means this group of
developers you're talking about would learn about that @type
attribute, when they won't learn about those @aria attributes? What is
the differing mechanism of communication in the two cases?

I do think developers are less likely to learn about features that
effect users in ways that aren't immediately obvious. Your proposed
@type suffers from this problem even worse than @aria-label does,
since it's a less general solution.
