This reference is sited to capture a format that is also
the W3C's XML Schema specifications. It can be replaced with an
existing normative reference to the W3C specification.
That's odd, why should you be forced to replace a normative
the perfectly fine RFC 3339 by some spec. published elsewhere ? AFAIK
nothing is wrong with RFC 3339, let's just promote it if
that's what it
takes to reference it.
There's more to it than "just promote it".
The practical point is that 3339 is only used to specify time and date
formats that are a subset of existing XML Schema formats. XML Schema is
already a needed normative reference. I don't really need two normative
references that specify the same thing, and I can't eliminate the Schema
