I disagree with that explanation as it is inconsistent when seen alongside
others. I am however, content, that since no one else pointed this out
before, it is good enough the way it stands.

Response from the Working Group
================================
Although we can see that it is ambiguous,"Page Titled" is a handle meaning
"page is titled", describing the state of the page, not the process of
adding a title. Since these handles were introduced to make it easier for
people to refer to success criteria, we think that the confusion produced
by changing the handle would outweigh the benefit of choosing a clearer
handle.
