[Bug 9042] In neither section 4.2.1 or 4.8.2 is the reason for leaving out the title in an iframe srcdoc clarified. Is this because it's inherited from the parent? Because it's irrelevant? What does document.title return in this case?

Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: It's basically irrelevant, yeah... to the user, the <iframe> in this
case doesn't really provide another document, it's just part of the parent
document. It's not so much that the title inherits, so much as that the
question of the title isn't really interesting in this case.

I'm not really sure how to express this in the spec's tone... if you think it'd
be useful information in the spec, do you have any suggestions for how to
phrase it?

(document.title returns the empty string, that's defined in the section on
document.title, as for any document without a title element)
