I need to make sure that the hCal microformats I publish can be easily converted into iCal format that is readable by Outlook.  Since Outlook requires the DTSTAMP property, I have to include dtstamp in the hCal.  Some of the examples at http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar-brainstorming represent dtstamp like this:

<abbr class="dtstamp" title="19970901T1300Z"></abbr>

Doesn't this violate the principle of visibility?  Would it be better to use something like this:

<span>Last changed on <abbr class="dtstamp" title="19970901T1300Z">September 1, 1997</abbr>.</span>
