hi graham,

mostly it is implied,if title attribute content was not available in some
manner then it would be pretty much useless.

It would depend on what the nroamtive text is would it not?

>This request seems like it would be better handled in UAAG. 
It is coverd in UAAG, so I propose that a reference to the applicable section
of UAAG within the title section (http://www.w3.org/html/wg/html5/#the-title)
would be in appropriate.
