This is part of the ABBR design pattern[1], you can use that for
anything. For example.

<abbr class="fn n" title="Jeffrey Lebowski">The Dude</abbr>

Because this is part of an ABBR element, any transforming application
should use the TITLE attribute, instead of the node value. You can apply
this to any microformat property

<abbr title="United Kingdom" class="country-name">UK</abbr>
