A date has a time zone if it's referring to a specific 24 hour period, But a
date doesn't have a time zone if it's referring to something like one's
birthday. For things that are actually periods, it's more likely that it'll be
a period of less than 24 hours, e.g. a meeting of one hour. In that case, the
datetime control is the right one to use, not the date control.
