Programmatic reference to delivery units (SC 2.4.5)

Here is how I interpret WCAG 1.0 Checkpoint 12.1 in the light of WCAG 2.0:

 

The best implementation of WCAG Checkpoint 12.1 is to use the title
attributes on the <frame> tag in the <frameset> page. SC 2.4.4 would require
that each frame page have a <title> element which is also a very good
technique. Since the <frame> element is a programmatic reference to that
delivery unit, SC 2.4.5 would require associated text describing the
destination and the title attribute takes care of that.

 

Assuming my interpretations are correct, my question/concern is this. I
thank an HTML page can include programmatic references to delivery units in
scripts where associating text would make no sense whatsoever. Is 2.4.5 too
broad? Should 2.4.5 refer to "perceivable programmatic references" (yuk)?

2.4.5. Each programmatic reference to another delivery unit or to another
location in the same delivery unit, is associated with text describing the
destination. [Level 2.]
