It's obvious but I feel the title attribute for new metabox indicators will be helpful for some users to know what will these indicator buttons do by browser's tooltip.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Owner set to joedolson
  • Status changed from new to accepted

We've largely expunged title attributes from core, due to their lack of accessibility. Adding an accessible tooltip for these controls is a viable option to consider, however.

It will depend on developing a core method to implement accessible tooltips, however, so this ticket isn't fixable until there are accessible tooltips in core.
