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.)
