I would say definitely not.
Originally docAuthor etc. were intended for use only within a
<titlePage>. We then recognised their usefulness within front or back
matter independently of this, and thus defined the class
model.pLike.front, of which it is written:
"The elements in this class can appear within a minimal front element
without any need to group them together and encode a complete title page."
I read this as implying that the grouping element you want here is
either <front> or a <div> within <front>.
If you use <titlePage> you are saying that you're encoding, duh, a title
I occasionally get offprints of journal articles which *do* have title
pages of a sort, for example they wrap the offprint in a reproduction of
the title page of the volume from which it is taken.
