The only thing optional is what you call it.

If you have subpages, the title is what you'll see as a link for
"clickable" navigation, rather than the unwieldy URL that showed up in
your info page.

Long story short...IMO the title is like American Express. Don't leave the
Xymon Home Page without it. ;-)
