It would be better to have only one element, as then the interminable

While I think @title should be supported, I am not convinced that its use
should be mandatory - that it should be a required attribute. According to the
HTML 4.01 DTD, it is not required; rather, it is #implied.
Dropping @title altogether from ABBR would be a bad move, as there would then
be no place to record the expansion of the abbreviation.
