For the ABBR element to be use properly the title attribute would need
to contain not a single point coordinate, but a representation of the
Rayenda area itself. While this could be done by combining the
techniques for image map poly coordinates with actual geo-coordinates,
this needs to be more carefully and fully thought out.
