Heh, heh, heh.  There are just about as many whois output formats as there are back-end data-stores.  Note that I say “data-stores” rather than databases.  Some of them aren’t.  So when you say “title” I assume you’re referring to half of a key-value pair.  A concept some large whois sources don’t have.

So, you’re not running into a poorly-documented mystery, you’ve run afoul of one of the rotten armpits of the shub-Internet.
