Why is this an issue within HTML5 spec? The article element is a section within
a document that may describe "...any other independent item of content" and has
no relation to data markup or temporality. 

To define partial (even optional) attribute specification of the content is to
imply and restrict usage. When an author wants to include and markup the
candidate content of blog post, atom entry, etc they would do better to use a
chosen schema vocabulary than for html to include a common, yet extraneous,
attributes. 

Without a formal decleration of what 'pubdate' definitively refers to, which is
impossible for all contexts, the inclusion will only harbor temporal ambiguity
and dimensionlessness.

This would be better described and defined within the microdata specification
as this is what it seeks to define.
