If "Jump to page" is going to be there then why the need to show so many numbers/buttons?

Nice... Should the page number buttons have a title since "page # of x" will be gone?

I don't see who would benefit from that.

as long as their is a screen reader title attribute on the button your fine

Title attributes for the pages sound like a good idea. So they don't have likes with name "3" on the page.
(additionally someone could post a link with that description in a post)

<a href="#" class="pagination-trigger dropdown-trigger" title="{L_JUMP_TO_PAGE}">{PAGE_NUMBER}</a> is still in place, so screen readers shouldn't have a problem in determining which page they're on.

Additionally, I think title attributes will get annoying really fast. Having those things pop-up for every page button mouse-over would bug me out personally.

I use the page jump. But only on large topics.
I agree about the arrows. Just use the title attribute and aria-*, just in case and for blind people.
