I will ask some of my Apple colleagues to look into the matter.

You can compile whatever you like as potential new information; I don't think the chairs will want to judge individual pieces. However, I'd suggest that you ask Dave Bolter if he meant to express unwillingness or inability to expose title in an accessible way. That would spare the need to guess his intent.

If you'd like, I can ask the Chairs to review the remainder of your questions
