<time> *does* express something more useful than just <data> or <meta> in that
it tells the UA that its contents are a datetime.  <data> would just tell the
UA "there is something here" and would be semantically equivalent to <span>

Thus, I support keeping <time> for the extra semantics
But could be convinced that an extra global attr is a good idea

Yet another meaningless tag makes no sense.
