If somebody would like to advocate the removal of pubdate, we would need a
Change Proposal.  The question here is whether that should be handled
separately from one of those two issues, or can be combined.

The Atom conversion has not been a part of the W3C HTML spec for quite some
time:

Tantek has begun work on such a change proposal:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Nov/0026.html =>
http://www.w3.org/wiki/User:Tantekelik/data_element

If the people interested in this topic can work together and a single Change
Proposal emerges, we can issue a Call for Consensus on that proposal.  If a
common proposal can't be reached, we will issue a call for Counter Proposals.
