Export strips HTML tags from Post Titles

As far as I can tell, html tags are permissible in Post Titles. For example, we use post title such as "Sea thrift, <em>Armeria maritima</em>" to properly designate the scientific name of the plant.

When performing a standard Export, these tags are stripped and not present in the export file.

It looks like do_export uses the 'the_title_rss' filter, which strips all tags. If html tags (or a subset of them) are permissible in Post Titles, then I believe these shouldn't be stripped out when doing an export.

These make sense to me but before we create a patch for this I would like some more input from other devs.
