I'd rather not do a generic attribute because we saw when we were doing
microdata's usability studies that that kind of pattern confuses authors. (It's
one of the things RDFa does that confuses less advanced authors.) But there's
no reason you couldn't use <data> in your examples:

   <a href="..."><data machineval="2010-01-01">2 minutes ago</data></a>

   <dd><data machineval="2010-01-01">Wednesday</data></dd>

(Probably with a different attribute name.)
