2.5.5 Dates and times
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-microsyntaxes.html#dates-and-times

The section describes date values using strictly the Gregorian calendar. As
long as the values are strictly internal (as a means of representing
incremental or floating time values, cf. our note Working With Time Zones),
this doesn't represent a barrier to the use of other calendric systems. Please
include a note indicating this so that international users understand why
Gregorian is used here.
