Maybe in HTML5 (possibly only in the non-"valid" superset) and in 
practice in many browsers, but that would result in two DOCTYPES and two 
titles in HTML 4, which is a syntax error, and two titles in earlier 
versions (with no real content) which might be allowed by the DTD, but 
is semantically bad.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
