The title attribute should be optionally set on most form fields.

This could be pulled from a new field attribute or the existing help_text.

+1 We should do that, help_text is fine in this case.

Is a specialized case. Can be easily done by using attrs argument in the widget. Am a -1 on this.

Help text is not always (in fact, hardly ever) appropriate as a title for an element. Since you should be able to already set this -- if you want it -- via the "attrs" parameter to widgets, etc, I'm going to wontfix this. There's no obviously good value to use that will be appropriate in all cases.
