Question for the XML gurus

We recently tried to load the IIS 5.0 response text to a propfind in MSXML
and had trouble parsing the getlastmodified property.  It appears that MSXML
does not accept "dateTime.rfc1123" as a legal value for the attribute "b:dt"
where b="urn:uuid:c2f41010-65b3-11d1-a29f-00aa00c14882/".  Changing dt
attribute to the dav namespace seemed to fixed the problem (would you do
this since dateTime.rfc1123 was a DAV data type and not under defined under
the b namespace?.)

Is the problem the way IIS 5.0 is representing the date format?  Is there a
more correct way?

and/or

Is the problem that MSXML doesn't understand the "dateTime.rfc1123" format?
Should it?

Here is a abreviated dump of the request and response in question:
