Thanks so much for getting back to me, Jens.

I guess I don't have a super strong opinion here either. Ironically, coming
from someone who spends a significant portion of their day reading raw
org/markdown documents with no problem, something about even the ASCII
style markup in the title looks wrong to me. I don't do SEO and
nothing in MDN's
article <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/title>
indicates
that non word characters have a negative affect anyway but it just looks
strange to my eyes.

I guess regardless it sounds like if I were to go to the trouble of making
a patch for this it would be good to make sure that it was behind an option
and probably defaulting to the current HEAD behavior of including the ASCII
markup with an option to strip the non-word characters from it.
