With traditional applications you are almost forced to provide a file
name because you have always have to go through a file picker.

I think Eben was playing with the idea of showing an autohiding alert
(similar to the downloads alert in Browse) at activity startup, to
encourage people to provide a title. This was in the context of the
discussion about getting rid of the activity toolbar and providing
close/share/etc in the frame instead.

I think we should also do a better work at picking a title
automatically whenever it's possible.
