Sounds like they're planning to have hots and d3 released this year, and have titan as the big thing for next year.

That seems entirely counter productive. If you're going to release 3 MAJOR titles in a year even at the end, surely Blizzcon would be the avenue to do it. E3 would already be over.

Even a 10 minute panel that was essentially just a teaser trailer for Titan and the panelists walking out would be worth it just for the PR.

Still its a bit disconcerting to see it cancelled. It does definitely raise the spectre of whether any of the games are even close to being ready for 2012.

Why would you release 3 major titles a) at the same time b) on a weekend c) while thousands of your most hardcore fans are away from home?

A 10 minute teaser for Titan could be neat, but what about the other 12 hours 50 minutes (I don't remember how long Blizzcon is)? Are they gonna have hour long discussions of the slight number tweaks they might make for WoW Patch 5.1? What exclusive demos are they going to offer if all the games are out?

There have been 6 Blizzcons (they skipped 2006). Four of those have included the announcement of a new WoW expansion (2005/7/9/11). The other two coasted by on some SC2/D3 news and some more stuff about WoW expansions, which were a month or two away.

If anything, it probably makes it seem more likely that most/all of those will hit in 2012. If they were going to be delayed to 2013, they'd be able to fill Blizzcon with talk of them and updated demos.
