2.5.5 Dates and times

The section describes date values using strictly the Gregorian calendar. As
long as the values are strictly internal (as a means of representing
incremental or floating time values, cf. our note Working With Time Zones),
this doesn't represent a barrier to the use of other calendric systems. Please
include a note indicating this so that international users understand why
Gregorian is used here.

Gregorian is used here pretty, as opposed to any other calendar system, much
arbitrarily. What reason would you give?
