The link which is output by get_comment_author_link doesn't seem to have a title attribute.

Same problem as in #24507: There is no need for title attribute. Plugins can add one by filtering get_comment_author_link.

The title attribute isn't just for "additional" information about the link destination, it is also for "advisory" information about the link destination. So i think you can get away with repeating the link text in the title attribute but i'm sure this isn't the biggest issue you have open right now :}

Thanks @helen, for pointing out the considerations regarding accessibility. it does seem far better to leave off the title attribute in this case.
