The Editor's response does not address the 3 technical requirements articulated
in the initial bug:

1. Must be accessible in a device agnostic manner.(Tool-tips are
mouse-dependant at this time)
2. Text must be resizeable and restyleable. (low vision users, contrast issues,
etc.)
3. Duration of display must be configurable by users. (addresses cognitive
processing issues)

For these reasons, a newly minted tool-tip element should be considered that
can thus take on attributes such as 'delay', event-handlers such as :focus
(this could be native) and the ability to be styled using CSS.
