Some in the microformats community have been making good use of the
<time> element, e.g. for publishing hCalendar, and implementing
consuming/converting hCalendar [1] with good success.

It would be great if the <time> element could support expressing
durations as well for the use cases as needed by the hMedia and hAudio
microformats as well as other use-cases (Wikipedia, IMDB).

Simple proposal, examples, faq, discussion (please contribute)
