Subject: [Fwd: [office-comment] odf12cd01, meta:creation-date and timezones]

Hi Patrick,

these sentences are left over from times where we had only a DTD (pre 
ODF 1.0) and may be removed.

Like ODF 1.1, ODF 1.2cd01 indicates (or at least suggests) that the
datetime format for some predefined metadata elements (like,
meta:creation-date) doesn't allow for timezones:

"To conform with [xmlschema-2], the date and time format is

However, xsd:dateTime allows for an (optional) timezone, and 18.391
office:value-type doesn't mention a format, but simply refers to
[xmlschema-2] 3.2.7

So I suggest to align them, and allow timezones (and fractions of
seconds, for that matter) for the elements meta:creation-date, dc:date,
meta:print-date by simply referring to [xmlschema-2] 3.2.7

Since the timezone is optional anyway, this requires no changes for
existing applications.
