I think there are several use cases. I've given my suggestions:

1) open a new buffer directly to a hostname or "go to" a URL: use that
hostname in the buffer title

2) follow a link to the same host (or domain) in a EWW buffer: leave the
buffer title

3) follow a link to a different host (or domain) in a EWW buffer: drop
the buffer title and just make it a number or something unique
