I have noticed that WAI appears to like "WAI, title" for the design 
sketches for their new site. I am not too fond of the comma myself, and 
think a colon (or dash) would be acceptable.

Also worth considering in this discussion is the (widespread, at least 
around W3C) practice of using "$title - context" rather than "context - 
$title".
Or maybe not...
The QA site uses both, e.g "W3C - QA - Calendar" and "W3C QA - Quality 
Tips for Webmasters" and "Tools development effort [qa-dev] - QA @ 
W3C". I guess we have some work to do to achieve consistency there too.

Not being such a big fan of creating acronyms for the fun of it, I 
think my preference would be to use "$title - W3C Markup Validator" 
rather than "WMVS: $title".
