I already started to go over the feedback suggested by Eric and will provide a new draft with included what I consider clear enhancements fast, and possible narrowing (as in above seconded case of the time format).

The next draft - to put the time waiting for a decision on the requirement level for CVSS v3 Scores to an optimal use - will contain the normative SHOULD to MUST changes for Date (Time) field content formats.

Please note, that the v1.1 was performing a wishful egg dance around that camp fire.

I am in favor of the change! ... but was not willing to introduce this possible additional breaking change singlehandedly without further seconders.

So thank you Art and Eric for supporting us here.
