A further advantage of this method has just occurred to me; it could use
plain-language *and* machine values in one title, thus:

        <span class="dtstart"
                title="we start at three minutes
                past four - data: 2007-09-12T16:03:00+01:00">

and we could even exempt parentheses:

        <span class="dtstart"
                title="we start at three minutes
                past 4 (data: 2007-09-12T16:03:00+01:00)">
