Oh, and for the setter, it looks like implementations don't do anything 
when assigning to document.title in SVG documents.  (Chrome does 
something funny where it remembers what you assign to document.title, 
but it doesn't affect what's in the <title> element.)

I don't have a strong opinion on whether we should make the setter do 
something useful or nothing at all.  If we do, any newly created <title> 
element should be appended to the document element.
