How about specifying that the content of <time> element will be parsed
for the date only if 'datetime' attribute is empty. In addition, the
spec should explicitly say that if the content is time in any other
calendar system but Proleptic Gregorian calendar then the datetime MUST
contain equivalent time in standard format (whatever the spec for
'datetime' will be).
