An attribute to qualify semantics content seems better than adding
yet another element which will be more difficult to implement in
editing tools and more constraining.
Something like in the body of the document.
<meta property="cal:dtstart" content="20060508T1000-0500">May 8th at
or something like
<span property="dc:date" content="2006-12-04">mardi 4 décembre 2004</
Microformats have (ab)used the title attribute to do so (Here no
debate possible, Tantek thinks it is not an abuse. So no solutions on
<abbr class="dtend" title="20060712">11 juillet 2006</abbr>
If we qualify it as an element then more information is necessary,
is not completely meaningful
so it means attribute anyway to qualify the content of the element.
These documents might give help for designing such a thing.
