That's true, but not something we can detect from a schema, as it's
more of a runtime serialization issue.

I've added a non-normative reference "Timezone" to this note in
both specs.

We have a non-normative summary table of supported types, with xs:date marked as N/A

I propose we add a short note for each type, as some readers may be surprised by 
the absence of basic types such as date.
