I was considering upgrading my 2x gtx460 2gb models.

I was considering 2x GTX670's 4gb versions (makes more sense than the 2gb models for future proofing) as a replacement but they would cost £700.......The titan at £820 is starting to look quite attractive, it would probably give similar performance to 2xGTX670's and be smoother than sli......also the 6gb vram would provide considerably more future proofing and being a single card would offer the possibility of an sli upgrade when required where as the already sli'ed 2x gtx670 would be more of an upgrade dead end.
Or would I be better off hanging on a bit longer for Maxwell on 20nm?

No you don't need this, just like a dude I work with doesn't [i]need his one-ton, lifted, dually F350. Nor does the other guy need his BMW 5-series (or the other guy with the slighly newer 5-series, or the guy with the Cadillac...I could go on, I work with a bunch of mid-life-crisis salespeople.)
I'd guess this will be bought largely by dudebros who think of themselves as gamers who spend daddy's money to have their "geek friend" build them a "wicked awesome" gaming PC.
