A lot of sites also have totally useless titles, because they are rather
innconspicuous in the title bar of a GUI browser and may not show
at all for the individual frames of a frameset, and because most people
don't think clearly about how their page will show up in a search engine.

(Also, in at least some contexts, it is possible to provide the title
as an attribute of an A tag, in particular for non-HTML target pages
(surprisingly few people realise you can directly target images!).  I
don't know whether Lynx will use this title as an intermediate default
before using the URL.)
