A wording proposal intended to resolve this issue is now on the server at


The note originally intended for the 'date' section has now, at last, found its
proper home.  And the note in the 'time' section, which puzzled the WG and led
to some revisions which attempted, with modest success, to make it relate
coherently to time values instead of dates, has been replaced.  The new words

  Some pairs of time literals which in the 1.0 version of this specification 
  denoted the same value now (in this version) denote distinct values instead, 
  because values now include time zone offset information. Some such pairs, 
  such as '05:00:00-03:00' and '10:00:00+02:00', now denote equal though 
  distinct values (because they identify the same points on the time line); 
  others, such as '23:00:00-03:00' and '02:00:00Z', now denote unequal 
  values (23:00:00&#8722;03:00 > 02:00:00Z because 23:00:00&#8722;03:00 on any 
  given day is equal to 02:00:00Z on the next day).
