I don't have your quote handy from the spec, but as I read it and as I
understood it as we were developping it, title was considered to be
addative.  I wonder if it's part of the erratta? I wonder if there are
techniques or perhaps something in the test suites that provide guidance?

Do you know a real-world example that makes it necessary to render the
title attribute instead of the link text?

My problem is not only the screen reader configuration but also the
passage in the UAAG spec which permits it.
