While the idea is nice, I think that 'title' is better preserved as an 
alternative to the TITLE _attribute_ in HTML, not the TITLE element. 
(Maybe we could even style these tooltips using @title.)

I think that the "document title" in XML should be expressed different. 
Perhaps:

  xhtml|title{
   content:document-title;
  }

The last element for which 'content' is set to 'document-title' will be 
"document title" of the document.
