See the examples at
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#the-time-element and then
compare with http://forums.whatwg.org/viewtopic.php?t=4043

The spec doesn't make it clear that the time element is meant to be useful *if*
microformats such as hCalendar adopt it in place of the abbr pattern.

Instead of showing semantic markup without any particular purpose, the spec
should show examples where the time element is used in hCalendar in place of
the abbr pattern, and the examples should be use case-oriented showing calendar
items for events that the user might want to copy over to a calendaring app.
