Accessibility notes

The usage of the semantic time element within this component can result in strange behaviours when using assistive technology such as VoiceOver for iOS. Specifically, it results in a "text splitting" behaviour, where any text in the prefix is read out, but the value inside the semantic time element require an additional swipe before being read out.

However, as we heavily encourage the use of this semantic element, and want to ensure it's usage is in line with the W3C examples, we feel this compromise is necessary.
