Could you elaborate on what your use case is?

The reason I ask is that we are thinking of dropping <time> from the spec. 
If there's a good reason to keep it, that would be good to know.

I strongly encourage you to use this spec:


...or, if you must use the W3C copy, this one:


You should always exercise great care when looking at the TR/ page as 
drafts on the TR/ page are almost always out of date.

(There's a big warning to that effect on the page you cited above -- was 
the warning not clear enough? That would be good to know.)
