[[
Time is defined according to [ISO8601].

I don't think it is appropriate of an open standard to be normatively
dependent on a standard that is available only on payment of a charge
for access.  In this case, we could make reference to the XML scheme
datatypes, which would also require us to think about my next point...

As far as I'm aware, ISO 8601 covers both points in time and time
intervals.  As such a bare reference to ISO 86012 is not really an
adequate definition: which do we want?  I suspect
