I think having an explicit dtend with an empty string as the value would be
a good (and l10n-friendly) way to do it. This way you can write things like

   since <abbr class="dtstart" title="2004-03-02>March 2004</abbr><span

as well as
   <abbr class="dtstart" title="2004-03-02>March 2004</abbr> &ndash;
     <abbr class="dtend" title="">Present</abbr>
