That's a good idea but there is a problem. The user agent would have to 
understand the date format the it's converting from and it has no way of 
telling whether or not 1/12/04 is supposed to be January 12, 2004 or 
December 1, 2004 or even some other date. Then you must also define what 
form to write the date in inside the date element.
In the spec it could say exactly how to write the date so the user agent 
knows how to convert it.
i think this is very good point of view.
