Because of this 'title' element should have the same or nearly the same
set of attributes as 'meta' element have.
It is especially important in XHTML1.1 which is supposed to work in todays
browsers. 'title' element without @property breaks paradigm of DRY that
drives RDFa creation, for example:

      <title>My Life and Times</title>
      <meta property="dc:title" content="My Life and Times" />

It clearly demonstrates that I have to duplicate content here - it is
totaly unnecessary. The quote form the beginning tells us that:

      <title property="dc:title">My Life and Times</title>

should be equivalent to:

      <meta property="title dc:title">My Life and Times</meta>

But it's not. Is there a clear reason to not make it work this way?
