Re: Title attribute for iframes

"This raises the obvious question of whether they should. Is there a specification somewhere that mandates this? If not, you can't use it as the basis of a justification for making the "title" element mandatory."

No, this appears to be a decision by Mozilla to ensure sighted keyboarders can see content. Iframes tend to have a default rendering size which is usually smaller than a web document, so I've assumed iframes get focus for the same reason FF gives scrollable/overflow-hidden areas focusability.
