But the title can be defined after \begin{document}, the only
condition is that \title must be used before \maketitle.

The problem in this example is rather that xr-hyper/hyperref
don't see an anchor name and assumes that the label was written
without nameref/hyperref.
  At least I have updated hyperref v6.80x/nameref v2.39,
that the initial value is "Doc-Start" (this will be set as anchor
by hyperref in \begin{document}).

But I still don't think that \label *before* \begin{document}
is not the best recommended way. For example, before the first
page it is put on the first page (the way \special works).
Thus the page number is "1" instead of a more reasonable "0".

For package zref, module xr I had written a more sophisticated parser.
Now (zref v2.12) I have updated the module and added the feature to convert
the imported references to standard LaTeX references. Therefore I think,
xr-hyper/xr can be replaced by:

    % verbose,% imported labels are shown in the .log file
    % tozreflabel=false,% if zref is not needed otherwise

If `nameref' is used (hyperref), it must be loaded *before*
the first \zexternaldocument.
