No more issue titles?

I've noticed something about several of Marvel's comics lately, and that is that they seem to be doing away with titles for issues. And it seems random, because there are times when an issue will carry a title and others when it won't. Not even on the credits/recap page. I double-checked these issues on ComicBookDB.com, and they confirm that there aren't any titles (granted, that's all user-generated content but still).

This seems really bizarre to me. Why do away with such a long-standing tradition not only in comics, but in storytelling as well? There was a time when one-shot stories of only a few pages in Marvel Comics Presents would receive titles, but now multi-issue story-arcs have nothing.
