We know that different libraries have different capabilities, so we  
can probably agree that some library metadata won't make these  
distinctions. One of the advantages of the data management technology  
of the Semantic Web is that your system can have a hierarchy of  
metadata:

title (broadest)
   - narrower: title page title
   - narrower: cover title

Some libraries can use the specific terms, some can use the broader  
term, and yet those different selections can be used together because  
the terms are linked. With this technology a search on "title" can  
retrieve the narrower terms as well - or not, as you wish.

Obviously if some libraries use less precise information matching and  
de-duplicating can also be less precise. However, the totality of the  
information that you have, meaning some information from different  
sources, can be used to make sense of things. So if MOST libraries  
have stated that the title page title is "Title X" then you can assume  
that an undifferentiated title "Title X" is a title page title. It's  
not a 100% kind of match any more, but a more nuanced match (that  
Simon probably has the correct terms for!). The Open Library used a  
version of this in their determination of Works by using the  
information from records that did have uniform titles to bring in  
records for the same manifestation but that had not included the  
uniform title.
