No but seriously, with my web designer hat on if you are concerned about
accessibility issues or abuse of the abbr pattern this is something
worth thinking about.

<abbr title="PT3M23S"><span
 title="three minutes twenty three seconds">
3m 23s

title distraction.

I don't think there is any abuse of the abbr design pattern in the above
example and it keeps machine data out of peoples faces.
