I have some trouble inderstanding the need for these elements really.
Especially when considering the example:
<p>Our first date was <time datetime="2006-09-23">a saturday</time>.</p>
Out of sorting all the events that happened that day, it really seems
weird to me.
I have an idea for another element: <color>
<p>He was driving his parent’s <color>blue</code> car.</p>
Do you see any difference in relevance here? I don’t.
By the way, what about:
<p>He <verb tense="past continous">was driving</verb> his parent’s blue
<p><name surname="John" familly name="Hopkins">He was driving> his
parent’s blue car.</p>
Just a little bit more serious
Now that we are going to implement meter, we need the whole of Système
International: <kilogram>, <ampere>, <Kelvin>, <mole> and <candela> (is
<time> a good replacement for <second>, I don't know)
OK, now, seriously: what is the rationale behind this?
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when
there is nothing left to take away. -- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
