I'm all for handling it in one place. What precisely do you want the 
behaviour to be? (Consider HTML-in-SVG and SVG-in-HTML also -- "the first 
<svg:title> element" may come after "the first <html:title> element", and 
vice versa. Also consider when one or the other is "primary" but the 
relevant element is absent.)
