No it does not. You are asking for completely different set of features
from what Lea did. All Lea suggests we have is a way to style the tooltips
that browsers show on <abbr> or image elements. You are suggesting we add
a state to an existing element that somehow becomes a tooltip by some
magic (how?)

These are not use cases for the same "feature" and need to be talked about
