Ben, can you elaborate on what you actually *do* with the <time> element? Is it
as a convenient styling hook, do you have scripts that operate on it, is it a
convention for plugin developers to scrape dates from the markup (as opposed to
giving them access to the backend representation), or something else? (I
presume it is not just "retaining full timestamps in the DOM", since having a
value in an attribute by itself doesn't do anything.)
