I apologize in advance if there's already something like this somewhere, but 
I haven't found it yet so I assume an equivalent does not exist.

I've long wished CSS could give us authors a way to define what text goes 
into the window title of a browser (or other viewing device). XML+CSS 
documents always strike me as unprofessional or unfinished,  because of no 
window title. I envision something like..

foo { window-title: attr();}
foo { display: window-title;}

Value options for a 'window-title' property could include strings, uri's, or 
even the word 'yes' (to indicate the element's contents would be the window 

Just a brainstorm you might be interested in.
