Subject: Re: [dita] <navtitle> element in maps

Creating a navtitle element in maps was covered by item 12018, "Create
elements for text attributes with translatable text ", which was design
approved way back on July 17:

I'm hoping, in the pretty near future, to put together a first draft of the
DITA 1.2 DTDs that includes stuff we've already approved - should make it
easier to find things like this, and/or to get a grip on what we've done.

Refresh my memory, please ...

Navtitles in map <topicref>s (as opposed to topic <titlealts>s) appear to
still exist only as attributes in DITA 1.2.  Is that because:
- it's considered an incompatible change to introduce <navtitle> elements
into <topicmeta>
- it's problematic to have both topicref/@navtitle *and*
- <navtitle> in topic <titlealts> is good enough for anybody
- no one has asked for a <navtitle> element in maps yet
- we agreed to do this already, but forgot
