Top break revolvers in Titanium?

Looking for feedback.

The issue that I keep hearing about top break revolvers in anything larger than .32 is that they have a heard time withstanding the pressures over the long haul. I also keep hearing that titanium is far tougher than steel.
I would like your views on using titanium in the critical stress areas of a top break frame to strengthen a revolver enough to handle higher pressure loads.
I am thinking that in today's world of CAD/CAM manufacturing a "modern" top break wouldn't be that difficult.
What am I missing... aside from cost?
