Steven,

1. WinEyes supports title attribute on the formm element and it is read when
you set verbosity to announce start and end of form. This is useful when
there are more than one forms on a page. So it will announce Registration
Form or Reservation Form etc.
2. WinEyes also supports title on list (UL/OL) elements. This is useful when
lists are nested. It becomes difficult to determine structure of lists when
they are nested. Sighted users can determine the structure from the
indenting but screen reader users can  find it challenging.
