Yes to the first one (assuming the wg came to that decision).
No to the second one.

That's up to me how I use it?
Norm says he uses it for CVS dates, so that may be how
he uses it (I guess that implies that's how he gets it too?)
but please don't tell me how it *must* be used Jirka?

Today, if I want to use docbook styling, I use the latest version (or not).
If I don't like it I override it with a specialisation.

I guess that's what I'm asking for.
Here is the 'standard' way to say 'insert the date'.
If I don't want it I dont use it.
If I want it but want to mess with it, then I override the general
with my own customisation.
