I think missusing the title is ugly just to repeat what is just said
in the metainformation as Homepage.

On the other hand I think this is also a missuse what we regard as
"citation".  You just try to link to the homepage in other words than
just given in the metainformation.  Citations should be in some way
publications in some (scientific) paper which is reviewed and the
purpose is that people who are using a program should cite this in their
work.  I assume if they would like to simply specify the Homepage of a
software they have used they will do it.
