 No. Titles in the menus may not be necessary, but they are there for
 flavor. And while some want to suck the life and all that is fun out of
 how we make our software, the "Howdy" still exists in core, and these
 still exist here.

 The titles are not necessary and do not need to be accessible. But unless
 they cause actual harm to accessibility, which they generally do not as
 screen readers tend to ignore them, then we will leave them and continue
 to have some entertaining aspects of the site, beyond the merely
 "functional" aesthetic that seems to be a common refrain these days.
