Comment (by orelweb):

 Hello, I don't mean to be rude or unkind here, but I've been a user of WP
 for several years, and I have been reading some of the posts up there, and
 sincerely I believe that this is an option that should be left to
 WordPress software users, and that we should be decide where to target our
 audience and to be use with what hardware.  I've always used the Link
 Title attribute for all my posts either in my own servers or in my
 WordPress.com subdomains.   I don't think that the reply "we definitely
 removed the title attribute and are not putting it back" is a very
 customer oriented attitude either.  Adding a title link with html code is
 awkward at best, and (like somebody said before) it does defeat the
 purpose of using a CMS.  I am sure there is a way to add that title link
 feature as an "advanced option" that will appear only if it's set up in
 admin settings, so those "confused" users will never see it unless they
 are looking for that option.   I don't think that we are the minority (for
 the number of posts I saw here in favor of adding back that title link
 feature), and without any disrespect, even minorities should have rights.
 As an "advanced option" suggested above (by Hansaplastique above and
 repeated here by myself), the majority will never see the Title Link
 option unless it's deliberately set in admin settings; so (as it's argued)
 they won't be "confused".  I think, however, most WP users are smart
 enough to figure out the right use of that option.  However, that is just
 my opinion (maybe a radical opinion).  I hope that WordPress won't become
 like another Microsoft, a company that is continually getting its
 customers upset with their changes and bright ideas.
