as an XSD date datatype, but a localized date? Displaying date values and other "typed"
values in a localized format rather than an XSD datatype is an essential feature of ODF.
The existing fields for the document's meta data (creation date etc., see section 6.4.2)

attribute. In any case, there currently is a rule that the text content of a paragraph and
its content represent what is displayed to the user.
Which means: I don't have an opinion whether we need typed meta data for ODF, but if we
