I don't get the semantics of this markup - <abbr> stands for abbrevations!
I would prefer a <dl> (definition list) like the following:

<dl class="vcalendar">
<span class="dtstart">10:00am</span>
<span class="dtend">2:00pm</span>

And to the general idea: I think markdown should become extensible (the php oo
version is already?) - and this would perfectyl fit into an extension.
Nothing for the main package though.
