We may need to use iframes for calendar data coming from a third party and
wondering about the accessibility of iframes and their content.

http://davidmacd.com/blog/is-title-attribute-on-iframe-required-by-wcag.html
seems indicates there may be issues with iframes generally and especially
when they don't have titles, particularly for VoiceOver

http://webaim.org/techniques/frames/#iframe seems to indicate adding a
title is all one needs to do to make them friendly for screen readers.

Seems clear adding a title attribute is going to help, but is there more
that we should be aware of and plan on doing?
