An example is a span with a CSS background image and a title attribute that would normally not get exposed. But Chrome exposes information like this, making stuff more accessible than we currently do. Test case:

data:text/html,<span>Marco</span><span title="male"><span aria-hidden="true">%F0%9F%91%A8</span</span>

This was found in the wild.

Elements such as html:span are normally only made accessible with ARIA attributes. Also expose them if they have a title attribute set. It can be assumed that information should be conveyed to the user in such cases.
