About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-metaAttributes.html#s_metaAttributesmodule

In the mail "LIST role/property module", we gave the following example.

<ul property="definition">
	<li property="description">An 
	<span id="def-acronym" property="term">acronym</span> 
	is a word formed from the initial letters or groups of letters 
	of words in a set phrase or series of words.<li>

Here again, creating a role/property module for this will free the author of many constraints and helps to use the attributes in different type of elements combinations. For example, a list or a table or some other structure which would be convenient for an author.

To be entirely logical, there is a strong similarity between "abbr" and "definition". It would also be better to remove the abbr elements for making it an attribute.
