IESG Telechat date: Not scheduled for a telechat

    This is a very simple draft, describing how calendar dates are represented,
    the same way as common knowledge  on how calendar dates are represented.  I
    am surprised that the draft is "STANDARD track".  Why?  The only thing
    might be that Tag 1004 is Text String, and Tag 100 is a negative integer. 
    Is it all for a RFC?

Section 1.3 states that Dates cannot be properly compared unless Time Zone is
attached. Strangely, the Time Zone is not included in the tag 1004 or Tag 100.
