[uf-discuss] Use title attribute in non-abbr tags?

I looked around on the wiki, and read Tantek's original explanation  
of using title in abbr tags [1], but I didn't find a clear answer to  
this.  Should title attribute values be preferred to internal text  
values in non-abbr tags when parsing microformats?  E.g. if a parser  
comes across something like <span title="Bob Smith" class="fn">Robert  
Smith</span>, should it take "Bob Smith", or "Robert Smith" as the  
value of the fn, or should that only be done if the tag is abbr?
