Martin asked me today about whether we convert
YYYYMMDD in .ics to YYYY-MM-DD in .rdf and I told
him yes, we do, for all the reasons he was gearing
up to give me.

He saw some recent (less than a month old) stuff
that suggested we were still doing YYYYMMDD in .rdf...
this prompted me to go surfing the history.

This decision goes all the way back to the workshop...

"The group appeared to agree that writing dates with hyphens - as per
XML Schema datatypes"

though I didn't implement it until a few months later:

moved ical namespace from 2000/10/swap/pim to 2002/12/cal
fixed dates to YYYY-MM-DD form
