I see, thanks for the clarification!

In this case I don't have an opinion except that we obviously
need to be aligned with Schema, and it's not clear what the
Schema WG will do.. allowing an implementation to raise an
error if dates involving years <= 0 may be plausible.

I do worry slightly about people writing code to see if one
date is before the other by whether the result of a subtraction
is negative, but the obvious ways to do that all result in
durations.
