properties/title is required by the xsd and should have priority, head/title is 
only there for compatibility with xhtml, but it is optional.

The other way round IMO. The properties/title is a required element, while 
head/title is optional, and properties comes before head, so simply emit a warning 
when a second title is encountered.
