It can be done with leaders but would rely on a hack using use-content
for leader pattern (the leader will hold the Title's label, not go after
it); it is probably not what you want if you want compability among 
procesors, or predictability at least.

Another approach would be to use a list for each title; it is the simplest
way to display two inlines aligned vertically with fixed horizontal offsets.

    <list-item-label end-indent="label-end()">
    <list-item-body start-indent="body-start()">
      <para>Title 1</para> 

I hope I haven't made too much typing errors in the code.
