You are free to introduce new elements. However besides, not instead of
existing (more appropriate in certain situations) ones.

My main point is that if we have an element for an exact semantic purpose, then
this element should be used in appropriate situations while more general
element could be used for _rest of_ (not all) situations.

If we cannot express _any_ sense with existing structural elements, then this
at all is not a reason to drop all existing semantics altogether.

There is no reasons to _replace_ <time> with <data> (this would be completely
irrational). Instead, <data> could be an additional feature (if someone needs
it) _not_ replacing existing (semantically more narrow and precise) <time>
element, but covering _rest of_ situations instead.
