Some releases ago WP introduced more strings to be changed from the register_post_type arguments:

Would it be possible to add a new argument for the "Title" placeholder text that currently says "Enter title here"?

Depending on the post type it may not always be a "Title". It could be the name of a company or a name of a member. Calling it title would not always be ideal for custom post types using the title field for something other that the headline of an article.

It's not a bad idea, actually, but nothing you can't do already using the enter_title_here filter. For example:

add_filter( 'enter_title_here', function( $title, $post ) {
	if ( $post->post_type === 'your-post-type' ) {
		$title = __( 'Enter Company Name' );

	return $title;
}, 10, 2 );
