Comments from the OPS directorate by Rob Austein: summary: seems harmless relies on (and makes normative reference to) experimental rfc 2540, which specifies two date formats and manages to hnork both of them in trivial ways. the binary date format skips lightly over clock wrap, which, admittedly, won't happen until 2106, but rfc 2540 claims to be about archival formats. the text date format is obviously intended to interpreted in utc, that's never quite stated except via a cross reference to the binary format, which, strictly speaking, does not nail down whether the text format is utc or not. none of this is simon's fault, just a weakness of the rfc to which he's referring.
