To clarify, I fully disagree with the concept of generally using the
outermost <title>.  That would negate the ability to describe items at
a deeper level., since the outermost one would always be displayed.

My suggestion is for user agents to not go into shadow content (i.e.
content referenced by a <use>) if the <use> has a title on it.  A
proposal with which I thought you were in agreement.  It certainly
solves your 'bowl of fruit' use case.  And Doug seemed to express
agreement also:
