Not all browsers support them (MSIE in particular). So while tooltips
may be helpful, you can't rely on them.
And that means they shouldn't be supported by PmWiki markup. It's not
very useful to have extra syntax for a feature that doesn't even work
for most readers! I'd reconsider when MS releases their next IE version 
(which, hopefully, has a better rendering engine).
