Not the biggest problem to solve, but it also appears that a solution is in
hand. So, can we get screen readers to do something useful with HTML5's
@datetime? Who wants to file bugs?

I would suggest that browser bugs be filed to

1. expose the the element name as a role=time property
2. expose datetime attribute as a property in accessibility APis
this will provide a common interface for AT to access the semantics.

see Filing bugs http://www.paciellogroup.com/blog/2014/06/filing-bugs/

note similar semantic information exposure has recently been implemented for the newer HTML5 input types such as URL/email etc in Firefox and chrome.
