What we can do is to start a 6991bis I-D to collect new definitions
but pushing such a bis I-D through the whole process just for adding
'date' is likely too costly.

The last time we updated the common typedefs, the comments received
during IESG processing were mostly concerning definitions we did not
add or change, and this might happen again. Some of that was useful
since terminology is often becoming better defined but sometimes this
also leads to interesting alignment and compability issues. While
there are errata pointing to 'internal' (yang related) terminology
issues, it may be necessary to also carefully check alignment with
other terminology documents that are coming along, such as
draft-ietf-dnsop-terminology-bis-09.

Anyway, which other definitions have we seen commonly used that could
benefit from moving into 6991bis (and which are not covered by say
routing types)?
