Alternative titles

A resource can have multiple titles, including alternative titles and subtitles. Titles are classified through title@type; the grammar is open-ended as to title types, but we recommend using “alternative”, “subtitle”, “unofficial” (i.e. a title that has become prevalent but has never been the official/intended title of the resource), “original” (including the source language title of a translated resource), and “main” (for the proper title or titles of the resource). If a title type is not given, it is assumed to be a main title.

“Untitled” can be treated as a main title.
