There has been a discussion of late in the www-html list
of late about datetime and the note:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime
The general consensus seems to be that at most
XHTML 2.0 should support a generic datetime element
with a datetime attribute to indicate the time specified
by the content of the element.

However, the discussion has also pointed out the strong
desirability of revising the note to allow the extended
formats added by revisions to ISO8601 that were made
after the note was first written in 1997.  This would allow
the specification of years outside the current range
of 0000 to 9999 allowed by the note.  The addition of
other extended and complete representations would
be of utility, but not as necessary as adding the
extended representations corresponding to the six
complete representations sanctioned by the note.
