SVG: title & accessibility

of nearly 7000 svg files in openclipart, only around 6 had title  
content.

please provide a warning when validating SVG files that do not have a  
title.

According to the SVG specification:
        Authors should always provide a 'title' child element to the  
outermost
'svg' element within a stand-alone SVG document.
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/struct.html#DescriptionAndTitleElements

this has significant implications for Accessibility as title content  
in svg is
similar to alt in html.
