The wiki syntax must permit defining the value of title attribute used for links (both internal and external).
This is important because current behavior of duplicating the target page title is not accessibility friendly.
The tooltip (title) is supposed to add additional information for the users. Also this attribute is very important for screen readers and duplication of the page title doesn't help at all.
Please should be able to generate links like
<a href="/aaaa" title="aaaa (the real one)">more info about aaa</a>

I wouldn't say that 542 is quite a duplicate because it does specify only the problem of having redundant info inside title. This bug is about letting people set the value of the title.
