It's based on potential future implementations not today's implementations.

An HTML WG decision discussed, and dismissed, the accessibility problems with
@title - taking the line that user agents could provide better access to @title
in the future:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Apr/0451.html

For now, the examples in the spec are in line with that decision.

Challenging the specification for @title should be a precursor for challenging
particular examples that use @title.
