Hmm so there's no implementation of COinS that doesn't interfere with
screen readers that have "read title tag" turned on?
It sounds like that isn't the default setting in JAWS but some people do
turn it on: http://www.standards-schmandards.com/2005/browsing-habits/
Are there automated (e.g. NOT a browser plugin) uses of COinS? I'm not
talking theoretical use but actual bots/spiders/import scripts. One way
we could support COinS on OL would be for COinS users to explicitly turn
it on. Or possibly it could be automatic if we detect COinS support
(maybe it's passed in the browser agent?)
