I'm not sure I understand your idea exactly, but I think the author might 
still be confused when his page doesn't contain (:title:), and he includes 
some other page that does contain (:title:).  In this case the fix is 
quite easy of course, the author has to manually set the title of the 
original page. It might still be too surprising however.
