That's nothing but a straw-man.  The point here was to avoid using
constructs that we know won't work on some set of browsers, not to
specifically code around any "quirks".  I already suggested a workable
solution that involves no new assumptions at all, which was to put the
added info on the linked-to pages instead of directly on the dashboard.

Now we could do that *and* use tooltips, if we can be fairly sure that
the tooltips will be ignored by browsers that can't handle them as
