Yes, the standard allows multiples. But is this really the wanted effect? Pretty much every RS out there would just pick the first <title> element and display that and only that. And if the epub is a collection of, say, 50 short stories and thus has 50 different <creator> elements in the OPF... well I don't even want to imagine what the average RS would to. I'd say crash, but that's just being cynical.

There's a great difference between what the standard says and what the RSs do.
