The validator seems to check <time> element value (and its datetime
attribute value) based on HTML5 "Dates and times microsyntax" [1],
resulting year only (YYYY) or year-month (YYYY-MM) invalid. e.g.

<time datetime="2012-04">April 2012</time>

However, HTML5 spec explicitly allows these values (and more) for time
element [2]. I guess the validator should follow the time element
definition [2] rather than microsyntax definition [1].
