--- Comment #5 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
I think Date's disadvantages have been dramatically overstated. See bug 22714
comment 13 and 22714 comment 14. HTML uses Date in two places,
media.startDate() and input.valueAsDate (the latter is unfortunately an
attribute, not a method, but returns a new value each time, which isn't
idiomatic, but it's already deployed, so whatever), and I would certainly
consider using it again where appropriate (e.g. on the <time> element's API).
