  I think the type of form you have in the demo (using a table to identify the controls) is a rare type. So this is not a big issue.

  Chris, I don't agree. I see variations of this idea in every commercial site have worked on. The title attribute on input elements (and select menus and textareas) is a crucial technique for the proper handling of forms. I think it is a big issue.
