If @title can be enhanced to meet the requirements specified:

 1. Must be accessible in a device agnostic manner. (Ref: UAAG 4.1.1, WCAG
 2. Text must be resizeable and restyleable. (Ref: WCAG 1.4.4, UAAG 3.9.2)
 3. Duration of display must be configurable by users. (Ref: WCAG 2.2.1)

...then it would likely be sufficient to close this bug. Do you have specific
ideas how this could be done?
