It would replace the "title" attribute from the semantic POV only. For example, various semantic extractors which know about <label type="title"> should use its content instead of the "title" attribute when they need to know the title of something. For those which don't yet know about <label type="title">, the "title" attribute will provide reasonable fallback.
