Why create a Title field when you don't have a title at hand at all?
That's just not sensible.

I admit my only use at the moment of TeX is LaTeX, so I'm surely not
aware of how this issue can affect other TeX use cases...

But the behaviour one could expect from dvips would be the following: if
it has a title in the DVI (in whatever form it would be), it creates a
title field with it, else it doesn't create one at all.
