It's another case where the "data-title-pattern" (or "title-data-pattern",
if you will) would work:

    <span class="type" title="data: parcel">shipments</span>

    <span class="type" title="data: home">Chez moi</span>

The more I consider that pattern, the more it seems that this is a
workable (indeed, best-possible) solution, if I say so myself.

I invite people to highlight any shortcomings it may have.
