--- Comment #12 from mark@macchiato.com ---
I agree with the comments that:

- For presentation and input, readers want to use dates & times in the formats
appropriate to their own languages.
- For unusual circumstances, ISO 8601 dates may be appropriate; even there, the
formatting is better without the T and Z. But those are unusual cases; ISO 8601
is better suited for a wire format.
- There is no need for a 'locale' element or attribute. The @lang attribute is
completely sufficient (for reasons outlined below).
