An added attribute as such does not solve compatibility issues, since old 
browsers simply ignore the attribute. However, allowing several <title> 
elements could solve them, if we can confirm that existing browsers don't 
get too confused with them and effectively ignore all but the first one of 
them, as it seems. An attribute might be useful for _new_ (versions of) 
browsers, or at least serve documentation purposes
