I see that there are a lot of errors in the manual with respect to the
<head> element. Most references to the use of <head> should actually
refer to <title>.
Luckily there's no potential for actual ambiguity in the use of the
schema with respect to <head> and <title>. The two can never occur in
the same types of elements. <head> can only occur within <castGroup>,
<list>, <table>, and <head> itself. <title> can occur within a bunch of
different elements, and represents titles in the sense you're thinking
of (book, chapter, section, etc. titles).
Just be certain to run your document through a validator and it will be
able to identify any errors relating to the choice between these two
