I suspect this is going to vary very much by author. Personally, I find 
it makes sense that the later definition over-rides the more recent, if 
declared on the same page.

If either title or PTV is included from another page, after the initial 
definition, I think a case can be made for either the first or the last 
taking precedence. For titles I'd probably want the first to take 
precedence. For PTVs I think it would depend very much on what I was 
trying to do. Either way I think we need a means to choose on a case by 
case basis.

Perhaps have a 'precedence' override flag in the (:include :) markup. 
(:include page1 precedence=-1 page2 precedence=4:), where the base page 
is defined as having precedence of 0.
