Abbreviations are an issue as well. If we're trying to markup what

month name:


And other languages, like Portuguese:


This, however, could be handled with <abbr>, without hindering accessibility.

<span class="month"><abbr title="October">Oct.</abbr></span>


(sorry if this has been discussed. it's hard to keep up with all
discussions spanning over the mailing list and the IRC channel)
