Thanks for catching this.

The reason for the current validator behavior is that the spec used to say
this:

  - The value attribute, if specified, must have a value that is a valid
floating point number.
  - The value attribute, if specified, must have a value that is a valid date
string.

So that's what was implemented in validator code.

But the spec now says this:

  - The value attribute, if specified and not empty, must have a value that is
a valid floating point number.
  - The value attribute, if specified and not empty, must have a value that is
a valid date string.

So, we need to update the code to match the current spec.

Because this is bug in the validator.nu backend, I'll use the following bug
from here on to track it:

  http://bugzilla.validator.nu/show_bug.cgi?id=881

So, you may want to add yourself to the Cc list on that bug.

I'll update this bug after I get the code checked in.
