I suppose it could be taken that way but one would think that it would be
applied intelligently.

This is the list of possibilities for handling of "summary, title,
alternative, description, or expansion of another piece of content D":

     * (1a) render C in place of D;
     * (2a) render C in addition to D;
     * (3a) provide access to C by allowing the user to query D. In this
            case, the user agent must also alert the user, on a
            per-element basis, to the existence of C (so that the user
            knows to query D); and
     * (4a) allow the user to follow a link to C from the context of D.

According to the spec, it would be ok to only implement (1a).
