Understanding SC 2.4.8 at
http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/navigation-mechanisms-location.html

Problem:
The existing set of techniques could include the page title (G88) as a
sufficient / advisory technique.

Proposed Change:
Using page title also serves to orient users on their location. Use G88:
Providing descriptive titles for Web pages
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G88 as a sufficient
technique under SC 2.4.8. If the editors feel that the length of the page
title string cannot be accommodated in the title bar, consider using this
as an advisory.
