Suppress Author and titles

It looks like "Suppress Author" only suppresses actual cs:names elements, not other variables, even if they appear as substitutes for a cs:names element.

To wits, in Elsevier Harvard, the author-short macro is
<macro name="author-short">
<names variable="author">
<name form="short" and="text" delimiter=", " initialize-with=". "/>
<names variable="editor"/>
<names variable="translator"/>
<if type="bill book graphic legal_case legislation motion_picture report song" match="any">
<text variable="title" form="short" font-style="italic"/>
<text variable="title" form="short" quotes="true"/>

Suppress author leaves out both authors and editors in in text citations--so that's good--but if neither are present, it _does_ print the title (which is bad).

Is this on purpose (if so why?) or is this a bug? From an old thread it seems like this behavior has changed.
