We already have the opposite of the abbr element. It's called… the  
abbr attribute (for th elements).
And yes, it would be nice, though not really essential, if there were  
a blessed mechanism for specifying different titles for different  
display media. This can be achieved through CSS media queries &  
CSS3's "content" property at present, and I don't think the usage  
case is sufficient to warrant an extension of HTML.
