           Summary: It's not clear to me if the "if the time-zone offset
                    is not zero" clause here affects authoring conformance
                    or not. FWIW, validator.nu treats <input type=datetime
                    value=0001-01-01T00:00:00-00:00> as valid. Also, the

Comment:
It's not clear to me if the "if the time-zone offset is not zero" clause here
affects authoring conformance or not. FWIW, validator.nu treats <input
type=datetime value=0001-01-01T00:00:00-00:00> as valid. Also, the term "best
representation of the global date and time string" doesn't seem to be used
anywhere in the spec.
