(This bug was posted by me)

Currently, the HTML 5 TIME element's datetime attribute does not allow for
ambiguous date inputs, such as just a year or a year and a month. These are
very common occurrences on the web (archive views are full of them) and
currently they could not be marked up with the TIME element in any valid form
that makes sense.

Proposal:
Add additional options to the "valid date or time string":

* A valid date string can also be a less granular date format, such as YYYY or
YYYY-MM, indicating the entirety of the year y or month m in year y.
