Working Group Resolution (LC-2798):
The WG thanks you for your comment.  Technique G88 applies to a single web
page, whereas the intent of SC2.4.8 is to allow the user to determine
location within a larger context than a single web page (for example, a
series of web pages).  Therefore, the inclusion of G88 as a
sufficient/advisory technique for SC2.4.8 does not seem warranted, because 
title contents themselves may not give location information to a user
within a larger website or web application.  However, we intend to develop
a future technique which suggests how to implement page titles in a way
which can address SC2.4.8.
