Comment:
The abbr element

I suggest to add the for attribute, for abbreviations and acronyms defined
inline. Some solution proposals:
1. <abbr>W3C</abbr> (<title for="W3C">World Wide Web Consortium</title>)
2. <abbr>CC</abbr> (<dfn for="CC">Creative Commons</dfn>)
Where the for content is equal to the abbr content, always shorter as an
abbreviation or an acronym.
