We are currently working on some improvements in the tooltips and labels templates which means that additional columns from the datasource will be available in the template. This feature will be available in the Q3 2012 release, as decsribed in this blog post
. The tooltips use HTML so you will be able to even include line breaks.
All the best,
the Telerik team
