Indeed, but people will take the code examples on the wiki as  
examples of best practice and copy them. The w3c added <abbr> and the  
title attribute on all elements as accessibility enhancements to  
HTML. I think that one has to bear that in mind when giving examples  
of how to use them in real world markup.
See http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/intro/intro.html#h-2.3.2

Is it feasible to change the hCard parsing rules so that the content  
of title is used, if present, for class="type", no matter which  
element the class is present on?
