Wouldn't it be more useful to have an attribute for descriptive information
that doesn't display as a tooltip at all, either in future or existing
browsers? Then title="" can then be reserved for use cases that do want a
tooltip. Adding a tooltip attribute would not solve the problem that the abbr
markup you cited produces a tooltip.
