Maybe, but I'm not sure.

Submit a request sounds OK, but accept a response sounds strange for me as it could cause confusion with accepted response codes (202).

Anyway, what's the problem with dc:date? For me its definition "A point or period of time associated with an event in the lifecycle of the resource." is just perfect, as it adapts to the context in any use case.
