Hello Ian,
It would be a beginning of solution to include in the title that the 
link is expandable. But how do you inform the user if the tet is 
expanded or not? Can you change the title of the link if the text is 
displayed or not?
For those you cannot display the title attribute because their browser 
is not able to or because they cannot use the mouse to display the title 
attribute, it would be better to find another solution.
What about using WAI ARIA to inform about the displayed text? It could 
be an example of best practice for using ARIA?
