Insert L2 criteria:  document or page or frames have titles (currently L3 should be L2). An Modify  
L3 criteria to say identify lists, forms, tables, and other elements with title or caption. I can live with 
this at L3 but would prefer this to be  L2.
Rationale: Need to distinguish title for page and frame  from title on other elements. 
Page titles and frame titles  are essential for getting oriented and should at least be L2. Titles / 
captions on lists, forms, and tables etc.  facilitate moving around and identifying the required one.As 
an example, if there are five tables with captions on a page, I can quickly move between tables 
identifying the desired one based on the caption read by JAWS. Win Eyes reads title on form 
elements and that helps to navigate to  the required form when there are multiple forms on a page.
(of course title on lists and forms need to be more widely supported by browsers / AT)
