Obvious counter examples would be electronic circuit diagrams, where the 
whole might have a reference number, the symbol as a whole a part type 
and each pin a function name.

For the schematic, the pins would normally have a very abbreviated name 
in the image, but the title capability allows one to do the same for the 
physical PCB layout, where the silkscreen would normally only identify 
pin one, but the title capability would allow all the pads to be identified.
