Truth is, I don't use Picard to tag my files .. not exactly.  I use
Picard for the initial tags (particularly for the MBIDs), then comes
custom software that includes calls to the web service APIs.  So,
theoretically, I *could* use the attribute, but can't see reliably
reforming the title in software.

I assume you mean if Picard was using work titles to tag, which is a good point.
