My understanding here is that the date defaults to a time of midnight, so
the end date must be exclusive otherwise a one-day event will last for no
time at all.
You're right to be concerned though. I suspect that it is too much to ask
people marking up their code to understand such fine points. Not to mention
the troubles involved with templated or scripted markup.

You may want to correct the proposition. The following from the proposal I
suspect is errant.
<abbr class="enddate" title="2007-03-31">31 January 2007</abbr>
Were you after the following?
<abbr class="enddate" title="2007-01-31">31 January 2007</abbr>
