How then do we then handle situations where the machine data is
hostile to humans?
If someone is editing the page without seeing the code, they won't
know about the title attributes either. A most likely scenario that
remedies this is when people spot an error in their microformat, and
get in touch to have it corrected.

Is it possible to use a relationship attribute instead?

<a class="duration" rel="PT2M23S">2:23</a>

If not my favourite for avoiding the title attribute being expressed
still has to be
<span class="duration" title="PT2M23S"></span>2:23
