We're going to run this past UI, but we actually had this set up in a previous version and can turn it back on with a small change. It would look like this:

This comment is on the patch as well, but I'll put it here for clarity: we'll plan to compare engagement with titles vs. no titles in the about:welcome V4 experiment, so we'll wait to land this until then.
