Thanks @bertvannuffelen 

Your points are all valid. But I would suggest that some of this is just modeling choices. In particular, an event could legitimately be modeled in two ways:
- it  _is_ a (kind of) temporal-entity, or 
- it _is associated with_ a temporal-entity 

So we could have defined a class `Birthday` and associated it with a set of individual  representations of the date, in the various time systems, also with one for the conventional gregorian representation. My judgement was that this example was good enough for the main point here - illustrating the equivalence of the different representations of a time instant. If we had wanted to make a different point - for example to define a class `Birthday` - then the example would have looked different. So although you certainly could make a case for a different patter, IMO there is nothing wrong with the example in context.
