Yes I think somewhere in the past this was discussed, although it makes 
sense to do as you say but... Microformats tend to be nouns not plurals 
as your example above,  consider this

<span class="duration"><span class="minutes">1</span>:<span 

doesnt make sense, so in order to accept that we can mark up both 1 
Minute 42 Minutes we would have to accept two microformats for one 
property. your Thought is Good however,  how about...

<span class="duration">
        <span class="h">1</span>:
        <span class="m">3</span>:
        <span class="s">42</span>

Looks a bit strange But it is expressing duration in ISO 8601 format .
