I was taking a look at ADR and thinking about context.

Say I want to make more of an effort to contextualize my blog 
postings. I referenced the city I live in - Salem - and would like to 
state that it is, indeed the city of Salem, MA.

First, can I even label Salem outside of adr?

<p>Unbelievable. Yesterday's high temperature in <span 
class="locality">:Salem</span> it was 57 degrees out. </p>

or should I simply make it

<p class="adr">Unbelievable. Yesterday's high temperature in <span 
class="locality">Salem</span> it was 57 degrees out. </p>

Or would that confuse anyone processing the content to think the 
whole paragraph is an address.

Likewise, has anyone thought about using proper semantics to 
abbreviate regions? I looked in the logs and didn't see any chatter.


<span class="locality">Any Town</span>, <abbr class="region" 

Just thinking out oud. Comments and responses welcome.
