It's the same in Bibletime as in Xiphos.

I think that the reason for this is because in the osis.xml for the KJV it has 

<osisText osisIDWork="KJV" osisRefWork="defaultReferenceScheme" xml:lang="en">

at the top of the xml.

If it had canonical="true" after xml:lang="en" it might display the 
acrostic stanza titles anyway.

Unless there's an error in Bibletime, Xiphos code.
