No its not. Ev'rywun knows Orkz builds 'em betta! ;-)

I agree here. It IS really great to see a Titan take a pounding turn after
turn and still get up. Like the hero in many a Fantasy novel or
"Check-your-brain-at-the-door" movie.

For this sort of effect I can see that the improved repair roll would be a
real bonus. I can cope with this improvement for Imperial and Eldar Titans
with the addition of at least making the Warlord's front Reactor Location a
1+ armour save (to make it immune to infantry basic weapons).

Sure. I agree here. I think either this increased repair ability (plus
the single change to the Warlord's Template) or the better shields/revised
template saves is the way to go. It only requires a small change in either
case, but the repair change requires no additional rules, just a change to
the current ones.
