How important are page titles in a single page application?

Hi all,

If a single page application (SPA) presents as a number of distinct 'pages' of functionality, is it necessary to change the page's <title> to reflect the current function/content of the page? Assuming that the change of context is made obvious in some way. Who will even notice the <title> change? My reading of WCAG 2.4.2 page title is that it doesn't require unique <title> elements for individual 'pages' within an SPA. But is this okay in practice?
