Completely agree that context is important. Sorry, I was actually thinking
about something like the example you gave (we use something similar on our
University's homepage, where you have news titles and a [more] link with
relevant title attribute set), just didn't spell it out clearly enough.
Certainly if we're talking about something like a long list of links alone,
without contextual information, it would be bad to just rely on a title
attribute and have the link text all the same (or very similar).
