RE: SSML specification: <say-as type="date:dml">

Dear Alex,

Thank you for your review of last year's specification draft.

We have officially Rejected this request (actually deferred).
Here's our response:

>>> This value has been discussed within the Working Group.
>>> It will be considered when the group resumes definition
>>> of the values for the <say-as> attributes, currently planned
>>> to begin when the SSML 1.0 specification reaches the Candidate
>>> Recommendation stage.

If you believe we have not adequately addressed your request,
please let us know as soon as possible.  If we do not hear
from you within 14 days, we will take this as tacit acceptance.

Again, thank you for your input.

Subject: SSML specification: <say-as type="date:dml">

dear all,
i don't think anyone has mentioned this before - apologies if i'm wrong!
for some reason, "dm" has been omitted as a format value for the "date"
value of the "type" attribute of the "say-as" element. still with me?
this is probably the most common way of writing a date in most european
languages: a meeting on 13/5, a conference from 30/11 to 3/12, etc.
i assume there's no good reason not to include it - can it be added, please?
with thanks and best wishes,
