?? I am saying that you shouldn't think of \title and \maketitle here.

Your report should have a title ... a single title for the whole report,
nothing to do with chapter title pages!

I consider this wrong, better

\include{frontmat}

and frontmat.tex' contains \maketitle.

I think this should be in a file backmat.tex' that you should \include(only).
