But other devices are able to show the attribute. So, I don't see the benefit of removing an attribute that works fine on common devices. The new template should be valid for all devices, shouldn't it?

If we want to make the software accessible for these users

... we should't restrict the software for other users. The users knows the limitation of a small device, he/she don't expect a full compatibility.
I believe, it is easier to keep the title-attribute, than to add it retroactively to the source code.

I agree. It is difficult to predict how a forum is accessed from server-logs. For some installations access from touch-devices (smartphones, tablets) is substantial, for others it is negligble. F.i. my forum is accessed only ~5% from mobile devices (guesstimate based on the OS and browser).
