I advocate for the removal of pubdate for the same reasons given in the bug
report, specifically comment 7. This is a minor change and should be regarded
as a cleanup from the old atom integration. The change proposal will only
include removal, not replacement.

> Can that be split into smaller issues?

I do not think this can be split into multiple bug items as the prerequisite
question is for the use case of if\how to represent elementary data within
html. <time> is an implementation of this for a single element type and so is
superseded by any <data> discussion and resolution.

as noted on public-html:

"The problem with having both <time> and <data> elements is their overwhelming
overlap in functionality and implementation. If we need <data>, why do we need
a special case for <time>?"
